Hello guys!

Being in contact with Mboka Liya, I came up with the idea that it would be a great opportunity to learn from somebody who was present at the making of the melodies we like so much, songs that intrument players like me, are desiring to learn, but cannot find a source. On the other hand I experienced he is living in a circumstance that is not worthy for a musician like him.

So I decided to start a project to have him show us how the songs of Wenge Musica can be played, while helping him at the same time to improve his living conditions. When I visited him in the past I experienced he knows the secrets so well, so he would be an ideal source to learn from. As my own funds are limited, I set up a donation initiative.

The details of the project:

- The covered musical period is the time of the classic Wenge and a bit beyond, until year 2000.

- Any amount can be donated by any member. A minimum of 200 GBP has to be reached so that I can start this project. We will record 5-6 videos per session. They will be uploaded to Youtube in FullHD quality once recorded and edited.

- I don't set a target amount for the project, but I would run the donation until there is interest in receiving more videos.

- If the 200 GBP minimum is not reached, I transfer the amounts back to those who had donated.

- You can donate by PayPal, Local Wire Transfer (USA, UK, Germany), or Western Union (the latter one will have a fee if need to be returned).

- The donation will be given to Mboka Liya and will cover a portion of travel costs. Another part of the travel costs will be covered by me, and also I will provide the equipment to record and do the editing.

The nearest time when I can travel to Mboka is March, when I can post the first bunch of videos that month. I hope until then we can reach the 200 GBP minimum.

The sum of donated amounts will be displayed here per season.

IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO DONATE, YOU NEED TO SEND ME AN EMAIL TO: MBOKALIYAGUITAR@GMAIL.COM WITH THE TITLE: "WENGE CLASSICS PROJECT DONATION", WRITE ME YOUR NAME, HOW MUCH YOU WOULD LIKE TO DONATE, AND I WILL SEND YOU FURTHER DETAILS TO BE ABLE TO PROCEED.

Truly sad, rest in peace our Sista.... if theres something we could do i.e. donations guys please let us know

Hello everyone...
If you are interested in making a donation on behalf of Stacey , this is one organization  that the family would appreciate.
I have been in contact with  both her father and sister, Stacey was diagnosed  with a very aggressive  Stage 4 Breast Cancer.. It had already Metastasized... spread to other organs and bones.
 
Metavivor is a non profit organization , 100% of all the money that is donated goes directly to research to better understand why metastasis occurs along with  methods of combating this.  . As yet there is no effective treatment to slow the process of metastasis. Only approximately 2%  from millions raised through various fund raisers   that promote Pink  goes towards  metastasis..not enough.

 By now Breast Cancer should be a chronic illness not continuing to kill  more than 40,000 women and men yearly .

Here is the link...... thank you....

Don't forget about the "pope" of soukous: Dr. Sakis, who is a Brazza musician, along with his mate: Dany Engobo, who were already well established artists by the beginning of the 90's:
