OUMOU AND AMMA
Malian Wassoulou musician Oumou Sangare plays Millennium tonight (Thurs) night at 8PM. My friends tell me it's not to be missed. How often do you get to see one of West Africa's foremost musicians play one of the most stunning, acoustically perfect outdoor venues in the world? Read more about Oumou here, and find out more about her concert here.
Keralan hugging saint Amma will appear at the Yorktown Mall in Lombard Friday through Sunday. I know for a fact it's not to be missed. How often do you get a chance to have darshan (an audience) with a living saint? Read my article about her here, and find out more about her visit here.
Both women are barrier-shattering feminists.
And both events are absolutely free, free! FREE!
