Send Djelike to Guinee and Back!

Since he arrived in this country 20 years ago, our band leader and guitarist Mamady “Djelike” Kouyate has sent every spare cent he has made back to his family in Guinea to help build them a house.  Construction had begun, and was progressing well, but a few weeks ago, a hurricane leveled everything.  Now his family of over twenty people are crammed into inadequate (even by Guinean standards) temporary lodgings, and the Guinean government is threatening to repossess the plot on which the house is built unless Mamady himself travels to Guinea to personally plead his family’s case.  In order to make the government’s deadline, he must leave by May 15th, but he can’t afford the $1800 airline ticket on his own.  So please, if our music has ever brought you joy, help our band leader out with a couple of bucks toward his ticket home! 38701086_1555985474127014_r.jpeg
