A sea shanty is a genre of traditional folk song that was once commonly sung as a work song to accompany rhythmical labor aboard large merchant sailing vessels. Deivito plays an ocean’s bounty of original Spanglish Sea Shanties including pirate ballads, dirges, sea shanties, and ancient marinated guarachas. A bilingual gumbo derived from traditional folkloric sounds of the North-Central-Carribean-South Americas, the sonic fare exemplifies a vibrant dance of the Old World and New.

Perth Amboy Artworks President Caroline Pozycki Torres was asked to contributed a Voices from the Field Blog story for the arts advocacy group ArtPride NJ. The story “Catch Basin Murals a Hit for Earth Day in Perth Amboy” is an easy to reference document on how to do a catch basin mural project. As grant funds were just released for the NJ Clean Communities program, this is valuable information for municipalities across the state that want to address litter in an innovative way. The funds can be used on catch basin murals because the murals serve as tools for environmental education, and tools for litter control and storm water management. Catch basin murals (though beautiful) are not considered beautification, as they are done in conjunction with storm drain cleaning and adoption.
