GENERAL TCHEFARY 

     BIOGRAPHY

General Tchefary is a descendant of the great opponent of the struggle against French colonialism in Africa “l’Almamy Samory Toure “.  Growing up with his mother, he never saw his father.  Becoming a musician kept him away from the bandits and out of trouble.

Ibrahim Toure alias General Tchefary met his music in West Africa, Ivory Coast in the year 1998.

As an artist, he started in the hip-hop movement then gradually deflected in the life of Reggae music.  He chose Reggae music for what it stands for.  Reggae music is his life; it gives him the joy of living.  It gives him hope to see a better world where people live in harmony without injustice.  Because of this way of life, he and Reggae music have become one, as if they were born together.

He released his first album in 2008, “Soya” which gives it a marked evolution over Ivorian showbiz and ranking it among the hopes of African Reggae people.

“Il Est Temps” is the title of the second album from 2013.  This CD became International, open to the world.  It talks about denunciation, revolution, and education.  This album has become an explosion factor for our General Tchefary.

In 2015 he was invited by K-Bass Music to America to promote African Root Reggae.  General Tchefary is multi-dimensional in his art, he sings with K-Bass Music, Solidarite Sympa, Dub Society and other bands.

He has performed at festivals with famous singers, Ky-Mani Marley, Morgan Heritage, Alpha Blondy, Third World, I Threes, Tiken Jah Fakoly, Takana Zion and many more.

Welcome To Aisha Qabila

https://www.itsaishaqabila.com/
Home of Handmade Headties &                   Accessories

My name is Aisha Jawara. I am the CEO and founder of Aisha Qabila, an African fashion line focused on handmade adjustable head ties. Aisha Qabila was an ideal fashion gig that I came up with during the summer of 2015. Aisha Qabila means Aisha is trying to create something in my narrative language, Soninke. Out of all the diverse modes of women’s clothing, the head tie stood out to me the most hence it screams out the dignity, strength, and pride of women. The unique ways of wearing it without any form of judgment were astonishing. So I thought, why not start a handmade head tie line. I started my line of a fitable head tie with different colors and textures. This is because I want the women to have a product that will build up their self-esteem, sense of beauty, and self-love. You do not need hair to be considered beautiful. I’m starting this fashion line of head ties to increase the awareness of all the ethnic beauty that continues to exist in the diverse world we live in. That being said, this was just an idea that has now become a reality, and I hope you enjoy my products as well as to support my mission for the empowerment of women.

Got a second to kill? Learn a new language with this MIT app (CNET)

MIT researchers design an app suite to help you learn Spanish or French while you’re waiting for your friends to get back to you on chat. Muy bueno!

If you work in a typical office, you likely spend a lot of time on chat applications (or chatting with friends to set up those after-work drinks, but no judgment here). How can you make productive use of the time while you’re waiting for a response? You don’t want to break away and do other things — there’s not enough time for that — so why not learn a new French word or two?

A group of researchers at MIT wants to help you learn foreign languages during such “micro moments.”

They’ve come up with a series of apps called “WaitSuite” that help you build up your vocabulary during those idle moments throughout the day. Instead of being unproductive while waiting for someone to write you back, or for your phone to load or your Wi-Fi to connect, you can engage in “wait learning.”

WaitSuite apps are integrated right into what you’re already doing. For example, while you’re making those lunch plans with a co-worker on Gchat, “WaitChatter” will test you on your Spanish vocabulary. This actually improves productivity on your primary task, according to project team leader Carrie Cai, since you’re less likely to leave that app to kill time with a mobile game.

The concept has applications beyond language learning — it could also be used to learn medical or legal terms, for example.

I gave WaitChatter a try. It’s a Chrome extension that works with Gchat, so if you’re on Hangouts, you’ll need to switch back to use it. Right now, you can learn basic vocabulary in Spanish or French, with other languages potentially on the way. The app tracks your progress and tests you on unfamiliar words until you get them right. It’s a lot of fun.

I learned the Spanish words for “council” “fact” and “company,” and felt much less impatient while trying to arrange those all-important lunch plans.
