Jaliba Kuyateh and his Kumare band are expected to perform another evening of musical entertainment tomorrow Saturday 5 July, 2008, at the Dream Park in Senegambia to give a treat to kora lovers.

Starting by 5pm, the kora maestro and his kumare band would be on hand at Dream Park to entertain, thrill, and treat the public with cultural and traditional tunes. Organised by The Gambia Women' s Finance Association (GAWFA), the concert will soon make everyone enjoy weekends with differences, as plans are at an advanced stage.

According to an information brief to Entertainment from the Board of Directors of GAWFA, the purpose of organising this concert is to celebrate 21 years of microfinance in The Gambia. The Gambia Women' s Finance Association, as the pioneers of microfinance in the country, have been able to reach out to women in all the sectors and the regions, in order to bring savings and credit to their doorstep. This is a great achievement of which GAWFA is proud and it will strive to continue to reach out to the poorest of the poor in The Gambia. Dream Park is stately, an amusing venue with so much to learn and enjoy.
