Dear Friends and Supporters,
Because of your generous and continued help since 2014,L’École Fula Flute has secured a home in Conakry that is now humming with daily activity.
Recently, our students were once more invited at the Palais du Peuple to perform for the President. Our reputation is growing and our work is valued in Guinea.
Greetings Dear Friends,
Thanks to your generosity, our Ecole Fula Flute, in collaboration with the Centre Tyabala de Guinee, is doing well and enriching the lives of many kids in Conakry (Guinea).
We further our students’ individual and musical development and thus contribute to advance Guinean culture by bringing up a new generation of dedicated flute players thereby infusing a new life in this iconic instrument.
