“Anansi” and Other African Folktales

February 25, 2017

Performances at 10:00 AM and 2:00 PM

Throughout the ages, Africans have used storytelling to teach life lessons, entertain, and explain the workings of the world. In this entertaining and educational program, the audience will listen to some of these stories and learn how African storytellers incorporated music to tell their tales. The audience will then become part of the storytelling by using their own handmade musical instruments as they discover how stories crossed the Atlantic to the Americas.
