HELP BABA WAIN
REOPEN THE SATURDAY DRUM SCHOOL


Dear friends I’m sending out this message to ask for Donations to a great humanitarian, my brother E W Wainwright aka “Baba Wain”. His second heart attack in 2019, has limited E W to volunteering and work very limited consulting hours. Also his failing health and eye sight has led to the closing of his Saturday drum school. The Saturday Drum School gave neighborhood kids an activity alternative vs the streets. The funds are needed medical, living expenses, rent of a new studio space, drum and percussion instruments, uniforms for student performances and utilities.

Once voted “Hero of the Year” by KQED-TV, gives way to those who know E W, that if you ask for a shirt, he will give you the “one off of his back” to help you. E W has donated food, water, and his time to the many homeless in the bay area, and orchestrated many free music events in coordination with the PARKS and RECREATION department.
When E W consulted as a “POSITIVE SCHOOL CLIMATE COACH” at “LEARNING WITHOUT LIMITS COLLEGE PREPARATORY ELEMENTARY SCHOOL, he provided a positve atomosphere with the knowledge of life skills for the developing youth through arts and drumming. Before his health failed, E W spent most of his time using the creativity and discipline of music to help kids and adults alike stay on the “right track”, through the African Roots of Jazz Performing Arts Academy. Also E W has held drum sessions in the California “ ARTS in CORRECTIONS PROGRAM” educating the inmates confined in the justice system.
E W walks in the light of the “Most Highest Spirit” and prays that your Donation will help him reopen the Saturday Drum School and fulfill his dream of “One man’s struggle to preserve the Heritage of his Culture”.

If you are unable to donate at this time, please PRAY for him.

E.W. Wainwright -- an internationally acclaimed jazz drummer, performing arts consultant, and producer -- has enjoyed an impressive career, represented by his command performance for the U.S. State Department and performances at Carnegie Hall and with Nelson Mandela's USA tour in 1990.

In African Roots of Jazz, Baba Wain (as he is affectionately known) illustrates the social evolution of jazz from its earliest beginnings to the present day, using musical forms of each period combined with movement, oratory, and audience interaction.
