Charity description

Alanouwaly Salifou Sylla  Foundation logo
The registered charity (No 1156274) Alanouwaly Salifou Sylla Foundation aims to exchange cultures by organising African music & dance workshops and an Annual Music and Family Festival celebrating our diversity in the UK. In Guinea we support our partners with self-help projects: IT, Sewing, Cultural Exchange and Clean Water projects.

The charity Alanouwaly Salifou Sylla was formed in the memory of Salif Sylla, an outstanding performer and teacher of Guinean and West-African music who had plans to help and create opportunities in his native Guinea. He died young in a car crash in 2008 and his friend and family have been continuing his work ever since with a Family music festival with food, stalls and activities in his spirit every last Saturday in September. We promote cultural exchange through teaching in schools and for adults and music performances. In Africa we are supporting our partners to create a Community Centre to run projects to improve the lives of local people. They are running a computer learning project, a clean water project (Eau Pure) and there is a guest house for people to come and visit, contribute, learn music. We welcome any kind of contribution. Just contact us if you want to become involved or want anymore information. You can see more detail on our website. Life is short and to join with others and do something positive is very rewarding however little the action.
