On February 22, at the Alaffia Baguida Cultural Center, the celebration of Black History Month vibrated to the beat of jazz music, fabulously orchestrated by Togolese, Cameroonian and American musicians. The audience of nearly 150 guests came from all sectors of social life, including ministerial and diplomatic personalities and the alumni community. For over an hour, under the guidance of American saxophonist Godwin Louis, four talented musicians knew how to handle guitar, drums and saxophone to amaze the guests at this evening, who left satisfied. More spectacular, when Ambassador David Gilmour was invited on stage with his saxophone.
As a prelude to this concert and still at the Alaffia Center, a Training Workshop led by Godwin Louis brought together about twenty young Togolese musicians who in addition to technical and practical knowledge had to deepen their knowledge of the African origins of Jazz, in order to sharpen their creativity and boost their artistic career.
Organized in collaboration with Alaffia Corporation, this cultural exchange through music is an opportunity for the Public Affairs Section to promote models of American culture in Togo for more prosperity .
