    Hello. We are two young men who both suffer from multiple disabilities. We are living at a so-called service-home for people with special needs. We need assistance for most daily things, which make our lives rather awkward. Our parents left us here when we were 6 years of age, as "unwanted children". Something that broke our little hearts at that time. We are still hurt, even though 20 years have passed. Music is our relief! Your music! We love your sound, lots! It's kind of a medicine to us. Our biggest wish is if we possibly, at all, may be, could have two autographed pictures of you? (One each). Our personal assistants promised us to have these pictures framed and placed on the walls in our rooms. If you would consider or decide to donate two such pictures to us, you would make the lust for life return to us. We would be grateful from the bottoms of our hearts. Please let us know whether or not you would like to do this little thing for us. All the best Ben and Mal.
    like the blend of different instruments cool and different music to listen too

Bio: Drawing from the roots music traditions of America, Niger, and Haiti; Bethany & Rufus with Yacouba Moumouni and Bonga Jean-Baptiste come together to create an unexpected tapestry, weaving the desert winds of Africa with Vodou traditions of the new world and the folk music of America.

“This is American music that reaches out to invite and include so much more. Most of the songs have a sad undercurrent and yet at the hands of these two artists they emerge as shining songs for a new time.”
