During the concert there will be a special announcement by Jamaaladeen Tacuma honoring his mentors , that dedicated time to the youth of Philadelphia in the 1970's during an era that was filled with dangers on every corner, these men helped shape the lives of many young musicians through out the city in essence saving them from the gang warfare that was claiming lives of so many whether by incarceration or by death. The influence of these great men is still felt today as they are leaders in their fields and the mentoring they performed pays forward in each of those they touched. These men played a major role in Jamaaladeen's life both as a man and a musician , he is forever grateful and wants to make this small gesture in their honor. At this time it is very important to bring attention to these programs, since budgets are being cut everyday and as we know music is disappearing from our public schools. Many of these gentleman are also actively fighting to keep these programs alive, Jamaaladeen is a success story from these music programs. With out them he may not have been able to reach the level of success he has been blessed to attain.

Free Form Funky Freqs hopes to shine a light on all these men and on all special music and art programs being cut away from Public Schools and raise awareness of the vital roll they play in our lives as human beings all around the world.
