Musical instruments

The original concept for instruments for Africa began when I first came to Mali to study music in January of 2003.  I was taking courses with very talented musicians, who had been playing and performing for decades yet could not afford a quality instrument. Coming from the United States, I am aware of all the unused musical instruments stored away in closets and attics across America.  If only we could find a way to get those instruments out of storage and into the hands of musicians and schools in West Africa.

Instruments4Africa will receive donations of instruments to distribute to the master musicians in the Mentoring Program and other related programs.
