Not just an album. A musical statement.
American Dreamers is a large jazz ensemble album from multi-Grammy nominated artist John Daversa and his talented big band. It features DACA registered individuals (also known as "Dreamers") who perform iconic America songs such as "Living in America", "Don't Fence Me In" and "Deportee." The album is based in jazz but includes cross-genre and cross-cultural influences. It shows what's possible in this country and in the world. A celebration of "togetherness."
