Music: Nefertiti Porter, performing as Galloping Strider
Nefertiti Porter is a long time musician who has experimented with many genres. Among her favorites are classical composers Bach and Vivaldi, these masters inspire her to continue to fuse classical technique with improvised music. Currently she is fully engulfed with hip hop and bringing her knowledge of esoterisicm and government conspiracies to the mainstage.
