This is nothing short of a magical crew of performers; from Tantra Zawadi’s mesmerizing spoken words to Tony Vacca’s World Music, from Abdou Sarr’s Senegalese dance to Massamba Diop’s fiery wolof tama drumming. As if this is not already enough, behind the music are partnerships that connect students and educational programs in Senegal and America, as well as provide health care assistance to high risk neighborhoods in and around Dakar… This musical collaboration is part of the engine that powers so much more than any one of us can see.
The Senegal-America Project performing live on Saturday, October 17th at Joloff Restaurant in Brooklyn, New York. Join us as we celebrate the release of our new CD “Evolution of the Vibe.” Featured artists for the night: Senegal-America Project founders Tony Vacca and Massamba Diop, Abdou Sarr and Tantra-zawadi! The energy is going to be amazing! Hope to see you there, and tell a friend.
