Jumpin' Jambalaya: A Tasty Mix of Stories with Kucha and Baba Tony

2:00 PM – 3:00 PM
Rogers Park


Kucha and Baba Tony weave a rich tapestry of fanciful folktales, frolicking fables and dialect into their performance art. This unique presentation is accompanied by drumming and shekere playing (the shekere is an African instrument made of a beaded gourd), enhanced by audience participation, which involves singing, learning and lots of fun.

Jumpin' Jambalaya is a little of this and a little of that, including diverse stories, folktales, call and response, dialect and poetry.

For all ages.
