Soro Bindi: Music and Dance from Ghana
We are celebrating Take Your Child to the Library Day with this exciting program! Created by Iddrisu Saaka who grew up in Northern Ghana, Soro Bindi is an interactive performance that incorporates traditional African dances and songs with an exploration of Ghana. During the performance, Saaka will introduce children to a new culture, leading them through various dances, such as the kpanlogo (an urban recreational dance influenced by American rock ‘n’ roll) and Bawa (the traditional harvest dance), along with call-and-response chants. Kids also can bang on a kpanlogo drum, a percussion instrument used widely throughout Ghana.
A reading club open to students in the 4th, 5th, and 6th grades, Page-turners meet once a month on Sunday or Friday afternoons. Please contact Eileen Fitzgibbons if your child would like to join the book discussion group.
