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.

Karmic Angels on GRTS (Gambia Radio Television Services) plus our schools

One of our documentaries in the Gambia this one relates to the school build in Brikama Medina which is due for completion by October 2010. The video was taken off the TV so its a bit flickery but you can still see our goals for the future.

The next 2 videos are of  our children at Busumbala having fun and dancing outside their new classrooms. 

The next is Stephanie dancing with them

This is our school children in Farato which will be our next school build.

Lastly see what it means to get a pen pencil or a tiny notebook to these children it is everything. This was our 2nd project at Abubacarr-As-Siddiq where we reconstructed 3 classrooms.
