Using call and response chants, energetic dances, and drum rhythms on authentic instruments, the group promotes themes of courage, hope, and sharing.

Blending contemporary and traditional storytelling techniques with wit and wisdom, his stories encourage youth to make intelligent choices and improve their character. Hear stories including the folkinspired African Stories in the Americas and a lighthearted children’s story, Under the Griot’s Tree.
