What Da Vinci did to ceilings, Charlotte Blake Alston does to stories with music. Whether it’s a story with a thumb piano, djembe or 21-string kora, Charlotte Blake Alston’s most powerful instrument is her melodic and mesmerizing voice. She breathes life into ancient and contemporary tales, engaging the imagination while tapping into life lessons gained from centuries of human experience. As she draws on the rich source of stories, songs, games and rhythmic elements that are hallmarks of the African and African American oral traditions, this is an event the whole family cannot miss.
