Thank you for this information about One World Beat.
Here in Lithuania I recently met an outstanding African musician Plazi
from Togo. He has organized a band here, Afroband, which was featured
by the BBC:
They were the final band to play at Lithuania's independence day
celebrations in Kaunas.
Plazi has joined us here. I alert us all to this worldwide event for
solidarity and to raise money locally and globally.
