[Wadabo_updates] Build a School in Africa benefit shows

The Build A School In Africa Project, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization,
is presenting two benefit shows to raise funds for our 3rd middle school

Coulibaly, with the Teriya Dancers, plus dancers and drummers from
Alice Heller's Troupe Teranga and a special repertory class directed by
Fatou-Carol Sylla . There will also be DVD's of Mali and of the school
construction projects, plus vendor tables and refreshments at
