Kabisko Kaba has lost several family members to Ebola, including his mother. He taught African dance regularly in Brattleboro at one time and now teaches here periodically. He was one of the featured teachers at this year's Abene African Dance & Drum Festival. He also teaches every other Thursday evening in Northampton, Ma. He is an integral member of our African dance community and I urge you to consider offering support to his family. See: http://www.gofundme.com/ektg8k to contribute to this important cause.
