SHAOLIN JAZZ in Ethiopia / African Union Recap

IMG_1129

Busy day.  Our 2nd workshop and performance that followed, at the African Union, was, by all accounts, a success.  We started off our day by being interviewed by a Hip-Hop themed radio show called The Breakfast Show.  From there we hustled to the African Union to conduct our 2nd workshop followed up by our SHAOLIN JAZZ L!VE performance.

This was probably my favorite edition of SHAOLIN JAZZ L!VE since we essentially brought DC to Addis.  The performance included: Wayna Wondwossen (our guide and a DC native by way of Addis Ababa), Ra Brown (a spoken word artist and MC who happened to be in Addis for the week), and Kenny Allen (a DC native who’s made a strong name for himself in Addis’ entertainment and fashion scenes for over ten years).
