In November 2017, Cornell Coley and Kenny Kozol convened international artists and produced a  powerful Latin jazz concert with dance, poetry and visual art. 











We've expanded the project for 2018, added Sandra "Sasi" Marcelino to the team and new name KECOSA COLLECTIVE. Launched a great workshop in May that featured Joh Camara, Missia and Fomoro Dioubate.
