This worldwide prized artist was a partner with us from the first email we sent to her. The idea of bringing the didgeridoo to the communities of Rebelados and Porto Madeira for concerts and community workshops was very well received and we believe we couldn’t have found a better connection in Cabo Verde for our work.

Thank you for your enthusiasm Misá!
