Music, Song, and Stories from the African Diaspora
Join us on an adventure exploring folktales from the African diaspora. Using music, song, and movement, our Teaching Artist will lead participants in the retelling of two folktales: The First Music and Abiyoyo.
Then sit back and watch Anansi and Sister Mud Turtle come to life in a shadow puppet show accompanied by Nigerian drumming and narration. You'll finish your African experience by making your own very own Anansi puppet!
