What is an underlying question that gives form to your work or interest in this field?

How may I best serve, through life purpose, a collective ascension of communal consciousness?

What is your personal experience of collective wisdom in groups?

  • Serving consistently, through traditional tale telling, as an instrument for the conveyance of collective wisdom and understanding during public/private performances, workshops, retreats and spontaneous gatherings.

  • Serving consistently, through travels and apprenticeship overseas, as a bridge between ancient, ancestral African oral crafts (specifically the craft of Jaliyaa) and the contemporary need for the building up and maintenance of the invaluable concept of community. 

  • Providing service to the underserved, through small, focused sessions of self-discovery, in recognizing the limitless potential stored within each human being. Music and storytelling act as the tools of the trade during these intimate sessions.

What is it about the work in this field that excites you and connects you to your own deepest self?

The constant, never ending, affirmations and signatures received on the key concept that all forms of communication express the necessity of human interdependence and bind the collective as one voice, one-verse (universe).

Please provide a brief storyline or snapshot of what brought you to this work.

Welcomed into the world in a room crowded with words and anxious anticipation; breastfed the milk of meaning and understanding by the feminine supremacy of communication before experiencing the rite of passage introduction to the 110 year old father of a grandmother responsible for mentoring the purging, and oft painful, processes of self-realization which forged a deep respect and adherence to always truthful ways and actions as a prelude to the placing of feet upon the shore of our ancestors; only to come back possessing a previous understanding, now wholly solidified and, hopefully, personified that: “as above, so below.”

Dooni, dooni kononi bè nyaga da.

How would you like to be available to others in this field?

Through private/public performances, lectures, workshops, as well as facilitation of individual and/or group processes dedicated to the affirmative ascension of consciousness.

All connections, for me, are meaningful and possess lessons to be learned for all engaged.

Yes, available to commune (communicate) with others.
