Event

The Africa Project -film premiere & live benefit concert!
Sat. Aug. 20, 7:30PM
THE AFRICA PROJECT -film premiere and live benefit concert

Film maker Joe Baker, founder of the Bay Recorders Organization, has brought together 35 musicians, 3 bands, and 2 choirs from Ghana, South Africa, and USA with the common goal of aiding African education through the power of music with "The Africa Project".

In June 2010, Baker took basic versions of three American classic songs and field recorded African musicians offering musical contributions to each of the 3 songs.

While on location, Baker then recorded the African musicians performing original native songs.

During the fall of 2010, American musicians were added to the three original songs as well as to the 9 new songs brought back from Africa, thus creating 12 extraordinary compositions from three different countries.

The 74 minute film, all shot in high definition, is edited by 11 different volunteer editors, giving each video song its own distinct experience.

This evening will feature the world premiere of the film, followed by a live concert with many of the American musicians who participated.

CD, DVD and door proceeds will benefit Ghana Initiative for Valued Education (G.I.V.E.) www.giveghana.org, an organization creating educational opportunities in Ghana, West Africa for primary & secondary school children and Amajika Performing Arts Foundation (NCD Foundation) www.tunokwe.com, a foundation on 26 campuses throughout South Africa that offers after-school care, tutoring, dance, theater, & music.  Part of door proceeds will also benefit St. Cyprian's Church building repair fund.    $13adv/$15door
