  • Griots in Concert - Linda Humes


Griot (pronounced gree-oh) is the French term for a West African oral historian or storyteller. In the spirit of this rich tradition, urban griot Linda Humes shares African, Caribbean, and African diaspora stories while encouraging students to become storytellers of their own experience. She is accompanied by a master drummer who provides a powerful heartbeat to each story she tells.
