The kind of music that you’ll hear from Penguin Cafe, one might not expect from a group whose roots were the fever dreams of musician Simon Jeffes induced by food poisoning back in the 70s. Even though some of his visions were bleak and isolating, they also included dreams of a place where people could gather for music, cheer and pleasure, the Penguin Cafe. Since Simon’s death in 1997, his son Arthur has carried on his vision and sensibility in the guise of The Penguin Cafe.
Since our platform is about expressing ideas and ideals instead of cash flow, clicks, or fundraising, we have the freedom to include a wide range of topics and formats that might not work elsewhere. We don’t need or want paid content, promotional materials, or story lines designed to please donors.
So the idea here is to present videos one or more of the editors feel speaks to them. Sometimes it will be news. Sometimes it will be history. And a lot of the time it will be culture. You can not and should not separate these things: it is diversity and intersectionality that makes our movement strong.
