On Wednesday, August 8th from 1 to 2 pm out in our greenspace, the library will be hosting a very special Summer Reading event featuring “Music of the Congo” with Congolese guitarman, Siama,along with his partner, Dallas Johnson!  Siama has toured the world and recorded hundreds of radio hits from 1971-1995.  His music combines elements of traditional Congolese music and sounds from East African dance floor, with familiar elements from Delta Blues and even reggae and calypso. Everyone’s encouraged to play African hand percussion and to sing along in Kikongo, Swahili, and Lingala.  This event was paid for with funds from the Minnesota Arts & Cultural Heritage Fund through a SELCO Legacy grant!  Questions?  Call the library at 896-READ!
