Hello All -
I am pleased to announce that I'll be ceding my spot at the Middle East
on Feb 8th to a wonderful musician from Haiti, Gifrants. Some of you
have probably seen him in the subway performing, but he is a great
talent and it will be a wonderful show. The updated schedule for LIVE
African (and Diasporic!) music at the Middle East is below. See you there!

Thursday, February 8 - Gifrants, from Haiti (http://gifrants.com/)
Thursday, February 15 - Fellyko, from the Congo
(http://fellyko.calabashmusic.com/ for previews of his sweet sweet music)
Thursday, February 22 - Mohamed Kalifa Kamara & Koliba, from Guinea
Time: 10:30 pm - 1:30 am
Where: the Corner (aka the bakery) on the first floor entrance at the
corner of Brookline St and Mass Ave at the Middle East

p.s. - Deraldo and the Brazilian Center won!! Details below from the
good folks at the BCCNE:
We are happy to announce that the Brazilian Cultural Center of New
England has been granted the necessary approval from the City of
Cambridge Zoning Board to go forth (continue) with the construction
project started last winter. Deraldo had a lawyer with him who made a
very strong argument for the Center. Even more impressive was the
support from students, fans and members of the community. When the
Board asked who in the room was in favor of the project about 3/4 of
those present threw their hands in the air.
THANK YOU for your support!
We are looking very much forward to hosting you at the new and improved
Center when it is open!
