Renowned Congolese guitarist/singer Siama and his partner Dallas host a fun music program for children which was inspired by the evenings Siama's family spent telling stories and making music together under the stars. Practice greeting each other in different languages, dance, play percussion instruments from their, "Instrument Petting Zoo" and sing simple, happy songs in English, Kikongo, Lingala and Swahili as you hear stories about Siama's rural childhood in DR Congo. This program is designed especially for young ones but it's lots of fun for the whole family.
