The 1st Farato International Peace Festival In The Gambia

SAM_0560

The 1st ever International Peace Festival in Africa took place in the smallest African nation of The Gambia on 28/29th November 2015 at Farato Mini Stadium. The event was officially opened by members of Karmic Angels and House of Action who joined hands to make this a successful festival.

A crowd of over 1500 people attended (which would have been more due to circumstances beyond our control) to watch some of Gambia’s top artistes perform all for charity and peace. Included in the stars that performed were Jaliba Kuyateh and his band, Max Miral, The Holy Family Band, Baba Blood, Article Slice, T Smallz, Sky Walker and many more. All appeared for expenses only for which we would like to thank them so much.

At the festival a number of certificates were presented including the surprise one to Jaliba Kuyateh who accepted his certificate graciously on becoming Karmic Angels Ambassador in The Gambia. This even brought the big man to tears.

Please view our YouTube video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3tDyxZkK1b4 for further evidence. The plans are to hold the 2nd Farato International Peace Festival on Saturday 26th November 2016 which will surely attract 1000s more to attend. Just to cap it all the festival went off peacefully as everybody respected what it was all about. Make sure you make a note of the date because we would hate for you to miss an even bigger, even better festival in 2016.

Karmic Angels African Music Night in Leith Edinburgh – A Fabulous Night!

Karmic Angels had its first African Music Night on Thursday 28th October 2010, which was held in the beautiful city of Edinburgh.

 2 DJs from Africa, DJ Gaoussou from Mali and DJ Momo from Morocco played the music throughout the night and gave their time for free in aid of Karmic Angels. Many thanks to Leith FM 98.8fm for their support and The Leith Dockers Club for kindly allowing us the use of their club for free. There was a sponsored head shave in which 3 volunteers had all their glorious locks removed. Thanks go to Gaoussou, Dave (Grisley Adams) and Gregan (The Warrior) who were the unlucky victims to loose their pride and joy but all in the name of charity. Thanks also to Emma Hall Hair Designs who gave their time for free.  Along with the fantastic African music, a star prize raffle was also included. It was a fabulous night, all in aid of the work that Karmic Angels does.

All in all over £500 was raised on the night. This money will be put towards our next school build. Thanks to all who came and supported us.

Lastly please view this and leave your comments please on our interview and our African Music Night video on You Tube. Thanks go to Simon our filmaker who runs Madeira Films who donated his time to making this film for Karmic Angels. Just click  the link below.
