Happy “Welcoming” Wednesday! THANK YOU for helping us celebrate all newcomers, cultures, and artists here in the Ocean State!
Today is our final WRIF video featuring well-known master percussionist and djembefola Sidy Maiga! Sidy has performed at several Welcoming Rhode Island Festivals in the past, and we are so excited to close this summer's virtual event with one of his amazing performances!
We have been welcoming immigrants, refugees, and newcomers to Rhode Island for nearly a century — and in 2021, we'll official enter into our hundredth year! So today's video is dedicated to celebrating all of the individuals and families we have served since 1921!
Help us continue assisting some of the most vulnerable populations in the state!
