Yogis Gigs Thanksgiving Weekend

Hi Music Lovers,

I have two very nice gigs coming up this weekend that you can enjoy. I will be playing keyboards with the Martin NTerry Beneere Band. Martin hails from Burkina Faso, West Africa, and sings his powerful songs of social change and love in the African Reggae style. Highly danceable, and you can practice up on your French, as he sings many of the songs in French.

Then on Sunday I will be on keys with Babu Kaju, that's Alex Kajumulo of Tanzania. That will be in Bellingham at the Wild Buffalo, and is a benefit party of the Slum Doctor organization, which has helped thousands of people fight poverty in Africa. We played last summer for Slum Doctor to a sold out crowd of several hundred and expect to so the same in Bellingham.
