We will include a brief and moving visual storytelling of how powerful women from the Central African Republic are organizing themselves as better farmers. Women, as mothers, have a unique investment in their families' nutrition. Because nutrition is foundation for life, they are ready to get right down to the business of growing more nutritious food and more of it. Unfortunately, women have less access to resources (better seeds, adequate farming tools, and best practices training) and we are trying to remedy that with this benefit.
More about the performing artists:
Diali Cissokho & Kairaba! , is a Senegal to North Carolina musical collaboration with an infectious sound. Full of unison melody, adventurous improvisation, fiery solos and polyrhythmic frameworks, they incite spontaneous dancing by the performers and audiences alike, helping to create a peaceful, loving and joyful community.
Acclaimed local storyteller Louise Omoto Kessel and her son, Jabu Graybeal on percussion will be featured along with Saxapahaw's Paperhand Puppet Intervention.
Giant puppets will be on display for a parade and dance during the music.
Also featured will be the uplifting, powerful gospel voice of Chatham County's Beverly McLean, featured artist of the locally grown Community Music Project.
Stick around and be treated with a special song by your favorite women farmers- Yes! they can also sing! in solidarity with their farm sisters around the world.
All proceeds will be given directly to the women, through the wise direction of Nanga Kaye - Cary, NC based agronomist, activist and native of Chad, central Africa. Nanga works under the auspices of ICDI, Integrated Community Development International, a non-profit, non-governmental and no-denominational faith based organization presently working in central Africa. ICDI has 501(c)3 status in the USA as well as tax-exempt NGO status in the Central African Republic.
Thank you for all you do in our local and global community to inspire peace, joy and positive change for the earth and all her inhabitants!
Hope to see you and yours at the show,
The Paperhand Crew
