Erik Andrade to Cabo Verde Music Expo

I have been invited to come and set up a table for La Soul Renaissance t-shirts at the international Atlantic Music Expo in Praia Cabo Verde in April 20014. The 3 day festival will feature musicians, music executives (including Bob Marley's Manager), record labels, and tourist from all over the world for this celebration of culture. I have taken out a small business loan for the printing of shirts and still need to raise funds for my flight, shipping, and stay in Cape Verde. I plan on performing and speaking for youth groups and.  This trip would be an opportunity to return to the cultural roots of my paternal family and would offer and opportunity to continue my community and cultural work in Cape Verde. Any amount of support would be greatly appreciated, I also have been invited to Cuba this Spring for a cultural and artist exchange. Any additional funds will go towards that trip. Please help me make a dream a reality.
