On Sunday, he’ll work with the students of the Three Rivers Jenbe Ensemble, in lieu of their performance Saturday, October 29th, when they open for Bolokada and the Summit City AfroPop Sextet.
On Monday, he’ll perform in an assembly at St. Joe Center Elementary school. On Tuesday and Thursday, he’ll conduct workshops for children at two Montessori schools.
