“We thank you for your participation in the event organized by the Department of Diversity, Official Languages, Human Resources and Skills Development Canada, that was part of Black History Month celebrations at Place Vanier, Ontario, on February 16th and at Place du Portage, Phase IV in Gatineau, Québec, on February 17th 2011.
“We are proud to have been able to host this activity and introduce our colleagues to the art of the African hand drums with the Percussimo group. We received many praises about the animation given by [...] Percussimo, which was presented in conjunction with an exposition of Gatineau artist Jane Ladan’s paintings. Your infectious good mood, your energy and your enthusiasm greatly contributed to this day’s success.”
