Ep #82 with The Senegal-America Project and Tony Vacca. Tony Vacca was our first guest on the show in July 2017 and has hosted many on-location episodes from Senegal since then. He has often joined us to play his balafon and percussion with some of our other guests like Abiodun Oyewole and Tantra Zawadi. He is a composer, visionary artist and instigator. The Senegal-America Project is one of those instigations that he started back in 1997 with Massamba Diop, superstar tama drummer from Senegal and longtime member of Baaba Maal's band. Together they brought musicians to the US and also brought musicians, teachers and students to Senegal. They raised money to provide thousands of mosquito nets to distribute there. In this episode Tony talks about the incredible circle of people that he has gathered over the years and how they work together to bring connection and mutual inspiration through their work.
