Rakefet was recently diagnosed with breast cancer, and this will be the beginning of a long road for the Laviolette family. Rakefet and her husband Joel run the Rattletree School of Marimba, which over the years has had close to 1000 students, friends, and family come and play music, performed for countless thousands of friends around the world, and enabled them to support teachers in Zimbabwe to spread this joyful music.
To celebrate, we will have music from Atash, Seau Jacinto, Bamako Airlines, Paula Maya, and DJ Félix of Cilantro Boombox.
From the family:
“We are asking for your support in helping us have the financial cushion over these next several months so that we will be able to take the time we need to recover from this. Thank you, thank you, thank you, to all of you who have given so much love and support. We strongly feel that what we have brought to Austin and the community that surrounds us is so much greater than us, and so we are asking for your support now to help us keep things going as we are in this hard time.”
Please join us for what will be a great show, for a great cause.
