Joel Guzman
Having grown up in a musical family and playing accordion all of his life, Joel realized that the accordion had no limits. Born into a dual identity, both Mexican and American, Joel continues to merge both cultures into his accordion style. "I may play a box, but I don't want to be put in one" testifies 2-time Grammy award winner Joel Guzman. One blogger at letspolka.com called Guzman probably the best three-row diatonic player in the country, and added, he can play anything from traditional conjunto to jazz and beyond". Guzman, a child accordion prodigy, was given title "El Pequeno Gigante" by his peers. Guzman has long beenknown to his peers as the mostversatile and virtuoso accordionist in Texas.

Sarah Fox is the main songwriter and driving vocal behindLatin Rock outfit Los Aztex. With a Mexican mother and a Cuban father, Sarah was exposed to the best of several worlds including top artists in salsa, ranchera, blues, as well as jazz music. In 1999, Sarah joined Los Super Seven (RCA/Nashville) as a guest vocalist. The Mexican Roots CD received a Grammy for best Mexican-American album. She quickly followed with "Short Stories" (Hightone Records), and Latinology (GFR). Both projects mixed folk and jazz creating an excellent fusion of tropical rhythm and roots music.

Joel Gabriel made his professional music debut at the 30th Annual Conjunto Festival in San Antonio,TX. at the age of 14. The young apprentice is perhaps best known for his work with the award-winning group Los Aztex. His skills as a guitarist and accordionist have landed him on stage with some of the best in the business. Musically trained by his father, Joel Gabriel began performing professionally in his mid teens. After taking up guitar he was soon putting his skills to use as an accompanist, culminating with performances with Los Aztex at Le Gran Soufflet in Rennes,FR, Pueblo Fest, Tulare,CA, and many summer festival stages from Texas to Louisiana.

The Flying Balalaika Brothers, ated by two Russian musicians, combines classical training with folk traditions. This group features vocalist Zhenya Rock on balalaika, accordion, guitar, and banjo; Sergey Vashchenko on balalaika, bass, accordion. They will also play original music by Zhenya Rock, composer.

HELP NEEDED

ADVITA FUND USA

Advita Fund USA was founded in October 2007 (tax ID: 26-1300404).

Patients in Russia and the former Soviet Union face unique challenges:

  • lack of national bone marrow donor registry;
  • bureaucratic red tape that families have to struggle with to obtain governments treatment quotas;
  • lack of supporting medications that have to be purchased privately;
  • high cost of imported equipment and medications, and
  • inadequate federal financing of healthcare

As a result, thousands of children remain untreated, receive inadequate care, or run out of money long before the treatment is completed. While close to 80% of children with cancer are cured in the West, only 50% survive in Russian hospitals. We strive to close this gap.
Your donations are used to pay for bone marrow transplants, cancer drugs and supporting medications, and other necessary medical procedures.
The fund is staffed by volunteers only.
Thank you for your kindness!

Advita Fund USA is a volunteer-run organization - it means we pay no salaries to our staff and incur only minimal administrative expenses, so that most of the money we raise goes to patients we support.

You can make the donation at the ADVITA website

http://www.advitausa.org/
