Also featured a couple of Peter Tosh tracks – celebrating his 69th birthday on October 19. Then Swiss came on and filled his set with 7” singles grabbed from YouTube (including tracks by Derrick Morgan & Johnny Clarke, Cornel Campbell, and John Holt), plus some obscure tracks from the likes of Jorge & the Landladies/Victor Rice, Seiko Oomori, Contratempo, Yann Tomita, and Ga-In. Certainly a unique mix tonight…

Alaffia was co-founded in 2003 by Olowo-n’djo Tchala and Rose Hyde as a means of alleviating poverty and advancing gender equality in Togo, West Africa. Alaffia was created to help West African communities become sustainable, and we do this through the fair trade of indigenous resources. Empowering individuals is one key to sustainability. We encourage empowerment through our community projects, our women’s cooperatives, and through education and involvement in our local, customer communities. We firmly believe that the cooperation of people across the world is an essential part of building sustainability in all our communities.

Health Notes shared an important conversation about the creation of world community with Allafia co-founder Olowo-n’djo Tchala.
