Grassroots cultural preservationists, musicians, writers, teachers and performers honoring the ancient tradition of teaching through storytelling. Our original and traditional folk stories are told over the captivating rhythms of Mbira, a traditional African thumb piano indigenous to Zimbabwe. 

 

Baba Shumba plays mbira, teaches drum & percussion, leads his world renowned, Focus Game, and leads our beloved Canimals! art presentation with a student led Q&A information session.

 

Mama Rose shares a lesson related story, leads breathing genius exercises, call and response sing alongs and team story building segments.

 

We seek to share our gifts with the world through our Mbira+Voice+Movement=The Art of Storytelling sessions. We teach through the telling of stories that are culturally rich and imaginative.  We engage students through the use of sound and movement to bring our earth and art culture preservation stories to life. Our goal is to nourish the artist that resides in us all.

 

Canimals! in the Classroom focuses on conservation awareness and explains the practice of recycling and up-cycling with students. Our hope is to inspire our youth to use their imagination to create their own processes of resource and waste conservation that is fun and helpful to cleaning up our planet!
