Our Feature Story

WE ARE CANIMALS! IN THE CLASSROOM...

A group of grassroots cultural preservationists, musicians, writers, teachers and performers who honors the ancient tradition of storytelling. Our original and traditional folk stories are told over the captivating rhythms of Mbira, a traditional African thumb piano indigenous to Zimbabwe. 

 

Baba Masani plays mbira, Mama Rose sings songs, tells stories, and encourages movement. We seek to share our gifts with the world by offering our Mbira+Voice+Movement=The Art of Storytelling sessions. We teach through the telling of stories that are culturally rich and imaginatively relevant to the hearts and minds of our future leaders.  We engage students through the use of sound and movement to bring our stories to life. Our goal is to awaken the inner storyteller 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 saving our planet!
