Every Awen Family Band show is a never before seen collaboration between musicians from other touring acts who understand that we are just moving the music and message from one plane to another "we don't create the lesson, only move the message" (Song-Kiwi Beach). Blending roots music from around the globe such as Zydeco, Bluegrass, Afrobeat, Wassalou (West Africa), Old Time, Swing and Psychedelic Boogie topped with lyrics spreading the message for all who seek to hear.
