We love performing for young people! Our educational shows are tailored for each audience. From elementary schools to colleges, ADAAWE creates an exciting, interactive lecture/demonstration performance, where each instrument is explained, the meanings of songs are translated and audiences have an opportunity to participate and ask questions of the performers. Audience members young and old get on their feet, sing songs, smile and leave with an understanding of the history of African music, Gospel, and an empowering feeling of creativity and inspiration.
“This is ADAAWE. This is music from Africa, from America. Spirit sent. Heart felt. This is skin on skin, wood on wood, voices on air. The first heartbeat. Reality. Put your ear to Earth and listen. This is ADAAWE.”
