Tomorrow, Friday August 2, 2013 we leave for our trip to visit the village Ncondesee to do the recording training with the choir and our intrepid tech team. Lily is Technical Director, will operate the video camera and give cues for the session. Joseph is our Creative Director and Chief Interpreter.
