Join Awava Saturday, April 10 for the Kroo Bay Initiative's (KBI) benefit concert and art auction in Denton, Texas. Famed pop-star and "African Idol" Maurice Kirya will come out to perform live for Denton residents! Kirya combines Afro with R&B to create a unique blend of music, a talent that landed him on CNN and has him traveling to Austin and Chicago to record performances.
Local Denton bands Every Explosive Ending and This is the Good Fight will play alongside Kirya. Awava, as well as artwork by Fred Mutebi, also of Uganda, will compliment what promises to be a memorable night!
The "Empower the Children" fundraiser will begin at 6 p.m. at Art 6 Coffeehouse. Proceeds will benefit and help empower children and women in Sierra Leone and Uganda. Bring family and friends, come out to enjoy some great music and coffee, and peruse the art and fair-trade products on show!
