They’ve been learning Malinke rhythms for the last four years from founder/artistic director, and Djembefola (Djembe Master) of Farafina Kan, Mahiri Fadjimba Keita.
Farafina Kan is booked to perform in Accra, Ghana a year from now, the week of February 24th 2019, to commemorate 400 years since the beginning of the transatlantic slave trade. As part of the Back 2 Africa Festival, sponsored by Adinkra Studios in Maryland USA and the Ghanaian tourism authority, they along with their brothers and sisters will be a part of a celebratory concert!
This is a great educational experience for Olu and DeLa as they conti
nue to learn about the Pan-African world they are growing into. So, we are asking our comm
unity to help get them there. Our friend, Yoach, has graciously donated a brand new iPad to be raffled off for as a fund raiser. We will do the raffle Friday night, on Facebook Live. Thanks so much for the support. Buy as many tickets as you can. Here’s a link to specs on the iPad.
