Making Cultural Tourism Strides
Amid Omicron Fears
Durban, South Africa-
Damon Batiste, Founder of New Orleans Based NOSACONN Inc. (New Orleans South Africa Connection), of NOLA's (New Orleans, Louisiana) Royal Family of Music, fueled with news of the eleven Grammy Nominations of his first cousin, Oscar Award-winning, Jon Batiste, and knowing the purpose and power of the Arts, did not let the news of the new COVID-19 variant discovered in South Africa deter him from his mission of attending the KCAP (Kwa Mashu Community Advancement Projects) KAFF (KwaZulu-Natal African Film Festival) and reinforcing cultural arts trade talks.
"Some members of my business and cultural arts team were in flight or preparing to come to South Africa as the news hit about the new variant," said Batiste, Cultural Arts Ambassador from New Orleans and founder of NOSACONN Inc. "We were not deterred by the pandemic news. Artists are often the avant garde of societal change; so, my team stayed committed to the mission to initiate talks to help bring hope, healing and prosperity as we face this pandemic together."
Energized by the news of the Grammy nominations of Jon Batiste, his first cousin and music director of the CBS Television show "Late Night Show with Stephen Colbert,"Batiste, who had brought Jon to South Africa during his formative music career, exemplified the "show must go on spirit." He refused to immediately return home as friends, family, and business associates concerned for his safety urged him to do.Click Here for Entire Article.
