ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
I endeavor to help families experience intimate moments with one another to open up opportunities for laughter, stories, songs, and hugs. Every moment is precious and during the intimacy a pathway opens for sharing wisdom and life lessons. I believe in the gathering of family and community. Culture is a matter of resources, how we choose to use them and establish ourselves in a particular place. I believe culture is a backdrop to what matters most... our human connection.

After I gave birth to my first child; songs, stories, finger-plays and bouncing lap games were my vehicles for communicating and teaching. The interactions were lovely and wonderful to see a smile, hear a giggle, and to feel two small hands cradle my chin. I teamed up with a fellow storyteller during my second pregnancy - she was pregnant too - to tell to schools and community centers locally. On several occasions she and I were asked by kindergartners if we were having twins. Though disappointed that we two storytellers would not give birth to children who look exactly alike, children enjoyed stories from my partner's home in Nigeria and my home in America.

Some years later I meet up with Karen and Kevin Holm-Hudson, producers of the Ugly Duckling Show for WEFT studios. Karen produced my performance of Catch a Story with their live audience. In addition, the audio is graced with gospel singer Cassinda Queen along with percussionists Sean Kutzko and Kevin-Holm Hudson. The collaboration of play, song, and ethnic flair was so wonderfully exciting. I truly enjoyed working on this audio.
