African Day in the Secondary School

Eintrag von 28th May 2024

Alissa Sanders was born and raised in Los Angeles, California. She has collaborated with musicians in Ethiopia, India, Israel, Brazil, Senegal, and Mali for Finding My Voice: a project that seeks to use the voice for authentic self-expression, empowerment, and connecting to musicians and cultures throughout Africa and its Diaspora, re-establishing the ancestral ties that connect us through time and across continents.

Alissa continues to create opportunities for musical collaborations across borders. In 2019-20, she produced the web series “Wherever There Is Music” which features collaborations with the Ethiopian musician HaddinQo, during his first trip to Brazil.

In 2022, Alissa organized and participated in a musical residency in Mali and Senegal, recording and performing with traditional and contemporary West African musicians and singers.

This Wednesday the 28th of May, she will offer a workshop for all Secondary Students, where they will experience and share their insights about the power and influence of African music around the globe.
