African storytelling demonstrated by a griot "LIVE" from Africa

Griots are storytellers in western Africa who perpetuate the tradition and history of their people orally. It is a creative way of teaching students about their history and the history of the world around them. While hearing stories from a "LIVE" griot in Africa, the students will learn how these storytellers incorporate music, dance, etc. to make their stories more entertaining. In this session, students will not only be entertained by an African griot storyteller but will be encouraged and asked to write and recite a story about their family, their personal history and their life story. Remember, history happens every day.

Learn African Music Live from Ghana

Oiada International would like to take a trip through time to experience the history of music via theatrical performance, skits and live interaction with students. Music is an international form of communication that can be understood and expressed beyond the limitations of language. In some African and Asian cultures, there is no word associated with the word "music" because it is so closely integrated with the daily living of people!
