Arts Envoy Residency in Zanzibar, Tanzania
BIG NEWS! We're very excited and honored to let you know that Deni Bonet has been made an ARTS ENVOY to Zanzibar, Tanzania. She's been selected to participate in the “Arts Envoy Program”, with a grant supported by the U.S. State Department. There’s only a small number of these grants awarded each year, so this really is a terrific honor! She'll be doing a residency at the prestigious Dhow Countries Music Academy in Stone Town. Deni says, "I was there last January, and I met some of the amazing students and faculty. This time around I’ll be teaching workshops and playing a concert or two. Dhow Countries Music Academy is like the Juilliard of East Africa, and I’m so thrilled to be going back there. There are some very gifted musicians that attend the school, and I know that this is going to be an incredible learning experience for me."
