Event

Rhythm of Change
Unboxed Lives is a local nonprofit organization that seeks to assist communities throughout the world in becoming self-reliant and creating lasting change in their community. This event will be aimed at raising money for multiple projects in Africa including a Child Rescue Center and Community Medical Clinic.

About the Event

THIONE DIOP AND YEKE YEKE TO PERFORM

Thione Diop, percussionist from Senegal, West Africa, is widely recognized for his powerfully expressive Djembe performances. He is descended from an ancestral line of Griot drummers in Senegal, West Africa, and is a master of the djembe, sabar, tama, and djun djun.

In 1998, Thione moved to Seattle to teach and perform;   a year later he formed Yeke Yeke, a percussion ensemble that has performed the traditional rhythms of West Africa to delighted audiences for the last ten years.

Thione is also responsible for some incredible regional events, such as the annual Spirit of West Africa Festival and Kasumai Africa, offering the Pacific Northwest audiences a chance to enjoy immersive experiences in African music, dance, and culture.

SILENT AUCTION

This event will feature a silent auction that benefits Unboxed Lives projects all over Africa. Some of the items so far include:

Autographed Seahawks and Sounders gear
Ticketmaster and Costco gift cards
Spa packages from Caruh Salon and Spa
Photography packages from Kathy Hickman photography
Ethan Stowell Restaurant package
Much more to come...

DRINKS AND APPETIZERS

Beer and wine from local makers will be available for purchase as well as soft drinks and water. We will be serving complimentary appetizers throughout the night to keep you full and happy. Bar will be cash only.

GUEST SPEAKERS AND SPECIAL VIDEO PRESENTATION
