Sucessful Jazz Celebration/Fundraiser for Sekou Odinga


On August 10, 2015, we had a wonderful benefit performance by world-renowed tenor saxophonist, Bilal Sunni Ali, at For My Sweet in honor of and as a fundraiser for former POW, Sekou Odinga.

The concert featured: Bilal Sunni-Ali, Tenor Sax; Rudy Wongozi, Keyboard; Eric Lemon, Bass; Larry McDonald, Percussion; and, Ras Chemash Lamed, Vocals. For My Sweet was full and the band inspired.

"Some of us have never agreed to be American and have struggled to free and build the Republic of New Afrika.
Under international law, oppressed people have that right, the right to be free of their oppression
and to build a nation that will protect their right to be free and independent. -Sekou Odinga.
