Sorry for the wait.... HERE'S AN UPDATE!

Hello MATSIKO fans, friends and family!

We would like to apologize for the delay on the blog updates as there were technical difficulties among other issues. Life on the road... What can you do? From this blog forward, there will be regular updates, pictures, and videos to check for and show your friends!


This week will be a shortened recap of everything Matsiko has experienced thus far during their three month adventure in America. For lack of space (and time!) it will be short and to the point. Remember you can always keep in touch through our Facebook and Twitter!  ( www.facebook.com/matsiko ) ( www.twitter.com/matsikoICN )

    What an absolutely amazing group of kids! I enjoyed every moment of their performance this Saturday at Lennox Middle School with the Harmony Project.
