Join us as Songs of Africa Ensemble weaves beloved African tales around delightful songs. Kick off Black History Month with another audience interactive show for the whole family...
"Life in the city is NOT as rosy as they make you believe. Everything costs money: water, food, rent, transport, etc. Not worth running away from family land in the village..." - Lingala and ki-Swahili folktale from East and Central Africa
"Our village is stronger when we pull together in a difficult marriage/relationship, playing our part instead of tearing down our union/group..."
- Igbo/Efik proverb from Nigeria and Cameroon
"Ukebele, a shining baldhead ought to reflect great wisdom, not to chase around our playmates..." - Zulu/Xhosa play song from South Africa
"Join the celebration and have a good time; this is no time to sit down with folded arms..." - Akan proverb from Ghana
