Anaïs Maviel performs traditional songs from the African Diaspora with voice, drums and n'goni, a West African string instrument. Then she leads a Circle Singing Workshop where audience members are invited to participate. Blending all voices has been a privileged way to gather and relate in many traditional societies, bringing together individual and collective expression in harmony. Best for ages 5 and older.
