Loco Dice Gives Back as Partner for South African Youth Center
German tech-house DJ Loco Dice is giving back in the best way possible.
Loco Dice, real name Yassine Achour, has partnered with non-profit group Bridges for Music. The organization was founded in 1987 and helps to provide music education for South Africa's Kliptown Youth Center, helping to empower young children to pursue music.
Regarding the project, Loco Dice discussed his family's roots in Tunisia:
The Kliptown Youth Center is a heart-felt issue, which really moved and inspired me. I feel my African roots, and I remember how important a local youth center in my hometown Düsseldorf was for me. There is music in the Kliptown Youth Center and there are kids who otherwise might not have a chance to create and express themselves.”
