Let’s EAT-DRINK-DANCE our way into raising funds for the children of College Adja Penda Ba in Nioro du Rip, Senegal. OPEN International is a 501c3 non-profit organization committed to providing quality education for children in rural Senegal. The organization was founded in 2008 by Arlington resident Khady Lusby as a way to give back to her native village of Nioro, Senegal. Proceeds from this benefit will go toward completing a much-needed 5th grade classroom.
Cheikh Ndoye broke on the scene not that long ago with his debut CD A Childs Tale. It featured a pretty amazing lineup including Russell Ferrente from the Yellowjackets and Dave Weckl and Eric Marienthall from the Chick Corea band just to name a few, and Cheikh most certainly held his own along with sporting some great compositional chops.Fast forward, present day. Come find out why he is dubbed “Young Lion”.
With your donation, you will be entered into a drawing for two VIP Tickets the next time Cheikh and his band play at the Blues Alley in Washington DC.
If live music is not your thing, there will be plenty of international music to get your dance on. Salseros and Salseras particularly welcome!
