A Magical Week!

Zieti and Matuto onstage_crop

After a successful debut at the Palais de la Culture in Abidjan, and a lovely evening playing music at Villa Kaidin last night for several ambassadors and their friends, Zieti’s future has never looked so bright. Plans are in the works for a concert next weekend in Abidjan featuring Zieti, and we’re in preliminary talks to nab a regular gig at a club in town.

None of this would have been possible without the outreach and support of new friends Matuto and the excellent work done by American Music Abroad and the US Embassy in Abidjan. We cannot thank them enough for the opportunity they have given us this past week. We all intend to keep working and maintain this momentum throughout 2013 and beyond.

Live music in Abidjan! That’s what we’re all about, and the reaction Zieti received for its original, roots music was welcomed proof that we’re on to something special. Stay tuned for more video and photos of the band’s progress, as well as a fundraising campaign to raise construction funds for our community music space in Abidjan, coming soon…
