I just wanted express my gratitude publicly to a certain someone in our lives that has supported us since we first moved to NE Mpls. I don't think she'd want to be named, and I'm not even sure if she checks our blog. But in case she does, I wanted to publicly say THANK YOU! This person purchased Rabi's first piece and others, brought friends and family to our shows, and recently has offered us one of the best opportunities we have ever received. I don't even quite know how to thank her for this blessing.
PS, a tassaba is something done in Burkina Faso. When you want to thank or honor someone publicly, you clap 3 times, pause, clap 3 times, pause, clap 1 time, and then thrust your arms out with your palms towards that person.
