Bring GRIOT to more fans worldwide!

In times of Covid-19,  it is even more critical for artists to receive royalties  from our art which is streaming  online. Some of the most profitable online platforms include iTunes and Google Play. It can cost upwards of $1650.00 to put artistic content on these platforms. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it is even more difficult for artists to make a living.  Please see below for one way you can help. 

In 2012, I produced and directed GRIOT  -  a feature documentary about the West African oral music tradition - featuring Ablaye Cissoko, Randy Weston, Fulani player Ousmane Bah based in Senegal.

Right now I need your help to make this beautiful film available on iTunes and Google Play.

With your help,  I will be able to bring the film to all of North America and Europe reaching more of our fans.  Any donation will be appreciated. If you donate $50.00 and above, you will receive a DVD of GRIOT. 

Your contribution will support performing artists like Ablaye Cissoko, myself and the musicians featured in the film to receive income.

Thank you for your time and consideration! Please stay well, my friends!

Sincerely, Volker
