Stories from the earth

Storytelling and live music performance -

African folktales and myths

​​

''In the beginning there was a huge milk drop. Then God made Stone, Stone made Iron, Iron made Water and Water made the Wind. Αt the end God combined everything to create Man''

Rhythm follows the sound of the heart, the feet walk firmly on the ground, words are beating and stories become music.

Stories made of soil and water make us return to where we came from.
