This is an interactive fun children's workshop to learn about the Cameroonian Kalimba (thumb piano) and bring traditional music to life. Njacko Backo invites you to join the Kalimba Orchestra, come, play and create your own sounds!

Njacko Backo is a kalimba player, percussionist, singer, storyteller, choreographer and composer who has been performing for children and adults since his childhood in Cameroon. He has a lifetime of practice in capturing the subtlety of dance and storytelling with his music - an essential part of the African performing arts. His programs for children and youth draw on parallels and differences between Canadian and African family life.
