Mixashawn Rozie is not only an IDP adult student, who will be graduating from Trinity with a B.A. in History in a few weeks, he is also a well respected artist and musician As stated on his website, Mixashawn has “captured and enlightened audiences in the United States and Europe for more than three decades. His incarnation as The Wave Artist draws upon a heritage of multicultural innovation that spans four centuries and both sides of the Atlantic Ocean. In applying to his arts an ancient understanding of waves in their multiple manifestations — sonic, aquatic, percussive, harmony — Mixashawn expresses a reverence for the unity and universal qualities that all waves possess and celebrates the unity of existence.” This past Saturday he performed Trinity College’s 6th Annual Samba Fest at the Mortensen Riverfront Plaza in downtown Hartford.
