Journey from West Africa


Sadarri & Company delight children of all ages with stories, songs, and games that connect oral traditions across the continents. Travel along as they take an imaginary journey from West Africa through the Caribbean and into the United States. Sway to the music and rhythm that accompany a West African Folktale energetically performed in interpretive dance and Sign Language. Students are eager to find out the silly secret of the King of Togo-Togo. Younger children frolic to the movements they learn in Sadarri’s jazzy rendition of Goldilocks and the Three Bears while older students are mesmerized by a Nigerian folktale about togetherness and community support.
