This 6 minute video documents a Burlington/ Puerto Cabezas sister city collaboration, the construction of a lunch comedor for a school in Burlington’s sister city in Nicaragua.
Funds for materials were raised by people in Burlington, Vermont, while labor was volunteered by parents and students of the Irma Cajina School in the community el Cocal, Bilwi, Puerto Cabezas.
I am especially grateful to Lou Donaldson for permission to use as a soundtrack his beautiful signature song “Blues walk”, so appropriate for the choreography of kids and community members working together in the construction of their comedor.
Dear Dan Higgins:
Thank you so very much for selecting Blues Walk as the sound track for your video.
Sweet Poppa Lou sincerely appreciates your interest in his music, and grants permission for you to use his music for the limited, non-commercial use you identify in your message, providing full credit to Lou Donaldson as composer and artist.
He wishes you great success with your important project on behalf of the children and parents of Nicaragua.
