Andre Elombe Badila. Remember the name.

Badila, a Hudson resident who passed away last week, was laid to rest on Monday. A visual artist and performer. A co-founder of the First National Ballet of the Congo. A co-founder (with his wife Pamela) of the Diata Diata International Folkloric Theatre. The man was all of this and much more. Most importantly he was a husband, father, inspiration, role-model and community leader.
