Jasmine Fuego is an Oakland based singer, educator, emcee and ARTivist deeply committed to creating art in service of justice, self empowerment, and liberation. Gaining recognition in 2014 for doing the first national Permaculture Action Tour, Jasmine is always innovating ways to use music and performance as a catalyst for social change. Fuego is a true renaissance woman whose magnetic personality excels in teaching mindfulness, curating showcases, house concert tours, and dance parties, co-directing Regenerate Change trainings, as well as emceeing and performing on stages across the country such as The California World Music Festival,The University of California at Berkeley and The Omega Institute. Her original music uses live vocal looping that seamlessly combines genres to create a unique sound she calls soul-pop.
I am a bridge builder. Being a biracial and raised both in California & the American South, I became really good at straddling many worlds. I fell in love with performance in my grandmother’s living room; memorizing all of the lyrics and choreography to Michael Jackson music videos.
My passions reside at the intersection of art in service of self healing, social & environmental justice, and education. In 2014, I co-founded the Permaculture Action Network, of which I now sit on the advisory board.
I spent the last 3 years teaching mindfulness and SEL to youth k-12 in Richmond,CA. I am currently working on a children's social/emotional learning children's television show and facilitating mindfulness in education trainings, school assemblies, and private consultation for educators/ parents.
This year I co-founded Regenerate Change, an organization that connects and trains change makers with regenerative design tools to develop social-impact projects in service to coordinated culture shifts and will be bringing the trainings across the north east for the Change Makers Tour!
I currently live in Berkeley,CA where I spend my time curating unique performance experiences/ concerts, salsa dancing, and singing with the Thrive Choir.
