A percussion-filled fable about a boy’s heroic quest to save his village from drought features music from Mali and Senegal, puppets large and small, one naughty monkey and a witch with an itch to dance. Hear the djembe drums dance and the ngoni’s strings sing as the griots tell you a tale. A tale set long ago when the stars were still babies, and the trees and animals talked. A tale passed down from generation to generation about a water-stealing sun and a baobab tree bearing an unexpected and unusual gift.
