I'm really excited to let you know that I have an online store now! You can purchase either one of my albums AND/OR hand-knit winter scarves (yes by yours truly)! Check them out by clicking on the "store" link above, or by clicking here: Nita's Store. Shipping is FREE through the end of the year and scarves are only $25…not bad…!:)
I hope you all have a very happy holiday indeed. Having said all that, even though it's fun to give and receive gifts…make sure you don't stress yourself out and enjoy what's really important over the holidays, i.e. spending time with your loved ones :) Much love always...
I wanted to let you know about this project that I'm honored to be a part of. Producer Brooklyn Shanti and Activist Tanzilla Ahmed have put together a benefit album in support of the Bangladeshi factory collapse that took place not too long ago. You can now download Beats for Bangladesh: A Benefit Album In Solidarity with the Garment Workers of Rana Plaza for a donation of $15 or more.

Proceeds of the album will go to the on-the-ground organization Bangladeshi Center for Worker Solidarity through the Washington DC based 501c3 organization International Labor Rights Forum.
Beats for Bangladesh: A Benefit Album In Solidarity with the Garment Workers of Rana Plaza is a benefit album that has brought together South Asian artists from across the United States and beyond with the goal of raising awareness about the working conditions that Bangladeshi workers continue to endure and to raise funds to support these workers.
Presented by the music blog Mishthi Music, the album has been executive produced and curated by world reknowned hip-hop artist Brooklyn Shanti, and political activist/writer Tanzila ‘Taz’ Ahmed.
