Batuki Music Society presents
‘MSAADA’ for East Africa Relief
Thursday, August 25, 2011 at the Lula Lounge
‘MSAADA’ - 'HELP' (in Kiswahili, widely spoken in East Africa.)
Batuki Music Society invites you to ‘Msaada’, the East Africa Relief concert
The concert features a lineup of some of Toronto’s popular African artists: Henok Abebe, Kooshin, Faduma Nakruma, Daniel Nebiat, Donné Roberts, Kemer Yousef, Njacko Backo and Val, Sonia Aimy, Ijovudu Dance, Hussein Adani, Yared Tesfaye, DJ Apollo and more. Many of the musicians performing hail from the countries severely affected by the famine (Somalia, Ethiopia and Kenya) and are joining hands with Batuki Music Society to raise funds and public awareness. 100% of proceeds from the ‘Msaada’ concert will benefit the Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders Horn of Africa Crisis campaign. All donations will be matched by the Government of Canada's East Africa Drought Relief Fund.
Every dollar counts.... asante, shukran, thank you, merci!
