Master djembe player Mamady Keita has had a HUGE impact on the students of the Arts Based School in Winston-Salem. What's more, Mamady has for decades been a leading champion and practitioner of West African art and music, much to the delight of a grateful world.

Mamady Keita is the teacher of our beloved drum instructor Bill Scheidt (http://ttmws.com) who has taught hundreds of our students over a career spanning more than a decade. In turn, Bill has taught and worked with ABS music teacher and K-Kids facilitator Peter Wilbur. At left, you can watch a video of Mamady in performance.
As a tribute to Mamady and Bill, the ABS K-Kids invites you to contribute here to Save the Children. To read more about their efforts in Guinea, click here: http://www.savethechildren.org/site/c.8rKLIXMGIpI4E/b.6150371/k.C79D/Guinea.htm
