Our Own Strong G sings in BAYO

February 25, 2018

I feel so proud of Strong G. He was just a teenager when volunteer Owen Thomas showed him how to use Garage Band on one of our new Apple computers that was part of our new Rotary International funded library. He started producing his own social conscious music videos about life in the Haitian countryside. Then he was discovered by Zach Lee, who brought Beat Making Lab to Matènwa Community Learning Center. Apple financed the project and the original partners of BML: Pierce Freelon and Stephen Levitin produced the music video "Danse Konsa". Michael Brun came to Matènwa to work  on  this project and became a mentor to Strong G and a friend of Matènwa.
