Siama's Congo Music - Feel good sounds from the heart of Africa

Siama's Congo Music - Feel good sounds from the heart of Africa

Siama and Dallas are bringing fun Congolese music to Stillwater! Everyone will be encouraged to sing along in Kikongo, Lingala and English while hearing fun stories that bring Siama's rural Bas Congo childhood to life. This is a rare opportunity to be immersed in happy African music in your local library so don't miss it! Siama sings and plays acoustic guitar, balafon (marimba) and mbira (thumb piano) while Dallas sings, plays shaker, narrates the songs and encourages everyone to sing along in Kikongo, Lingala and English. 

Program is presented in partnership with Lumberjack Days. This rogram is made possible in part with support from Minnesota's Arts and Cultural Heritage (Legacy) Fund.
