I’m always amazed at how Ghanaian music and dance has the ability to bring so many different ages and backgrounds of people together. Mentoring opportunities are a natural in this music and Baobab Youth Performers are always working with each other to learn and share rhythms and dance moves. These are kids ranging from age 11 through 17…kind of amazing to have such a big span. We also regularly get opportunities to work with other kids in public settings, which gives the Baobab Youth members some experience in teaching and engaging with the public. We just finished a luncheon at Algonquin College Language Institute for graduates and their families where the children had to learn a drum pattern before they could get a stamp in their passport…a lot of fun for our gang too….
