Sunday concert benefits African school

The public is invited to an afternoon of African-Indian music and food in support of The Jane Adeny Memorial School for Girls in Kenya, Africa.

The concert will be held from noon to 3:30 pm. Sunday at The House Cafe, 263 E Lincoln Highway, DeKalb.

The Jane Adeny Memorial School is a nonprofit school dedicated to providing orphans and impoverished girls the opportunity of a high school education.

The event will include a performance by Fareed Haque’s Indian band The Flat Earth Ensemble and African musician Mathew Tembo. Flat Earth Ensemble will feature performances by the renowned musicians Nirmalya Roy, Hindustani vocals and harmonium; Subrata Bhattacharya, tabla; and Indrajit Banerjee, sitar. All three recently arrived here from India.

Tickets cost $25 for adults and $14 for students. The event is free for children younger than 12. A light buffet of African and Indian dishes is included. A 50/50 raffle with tickets priced at $1 each also will be held.

Tickets can be purchased at the door or before the event. Call Jill Sanderson at 815-761-7464.
