Reception at the US Embassy, Cotonou

Leni Stern plays with her Beninese band.

On December 1st, 2011 the arrival of CIAMO Founder Sarah duPont and artist-in-residence Leni Stern was honored by the United States Embassy at a reception hosted by Ambassador James and Mrs. Amelia Knight. The evening gave CIAMO a chance to meet and get to know important actors in Benin, and make potential connections that will allow us to become a more sustainable organization.

World Musician and talented guitarist Leni Stern, with local artists Lekan and Magloire, played a brief concert of her songs.

CIAMO is very thankful to the Ambassador for his reception, and we look forward to a continued partnership with the American embassy.
