Guinea Matoto Community School Update – July 2022

Together with MamaPower, we represented ICO at this year’s AfriCa Fest. Attendees witnessed thrilling performances from our headliners, Zal Sissokho, a world-renowned kora player and his band, and the Abahebera Drummers, a group of 12 Burundian drummers. We enjoyed connecting with the local community for the first time in a very long time!
