East Central Regional Library encourages community members of all ages to join Siama and his wife, Dallas, for songs and stories that bring Siama’s Congolese culture to life.
The program, Siama’s Congo Roots: Feel-good music from the Heart of Africa, engages both kids and adults to sing along to catchy songs in Kikongo, Lingala and Swahili and play fun hand percussion instruments. Along with learning about Siama’s rural childhood in DR Congo, hear Siama play guitar and mbira with Dallas singing harmony.
Mark your calendars for this one-of-a-kind program, funded with money from Minnesota Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund:
