Singer, songwriter and the heart of Mahina Movement s music. Gabby represents Hollis, Queens, where she was raised by an adopted family. Gabby has a fierce passion for music and has consistently been writing songs since she was 5 years old. Her story is featured in the documentary, Anomaly , directed by Jessica Chen Drammeh, which offers a compelling look at the experiences of people of mixed ethnicity.

Left on Red
These two young women’s talents run the musical gamut, but they are primarily a rock duo with Liah on guitar, Kelly on violin, and both on vocals. Left on Red routinely play in hospitals and nursing homes as well as performing for Veterans on a shared bill with Tom Morello and his organization Axis of Justice, Musicians on Call, YWCA, and many more.

About the World March for Peace and Nonviolence
The World March was launched by World Without Wars and Without Violence, an affiliation of the Humanist Movement, and is being carried out with the active participation of thousands of organizations, federations, and educational, religious and cultural institutions from around the world. The March calls for the end of wars and the abolition of nuclear weapons, and aims to create a global consciousness that universally condemns all forms of violence. The World March began on October 2 and will pass through countries on 6 continents before ending in the Andes mountains in Argentina on January 2, 2010.
