  1. Have you communicated with the Sonic Boom band director? Maybe creating a special program with your style of music for a classic football game or homecoming, could not hurt. Great job, help JSU too.

    • Great idea. Yes, I have started collaborating with the Band Director and he is thrilled about the addition of African tunes to the Sonic’s repertoire. Dr. Akombo
