Funga Alafia, a warm welcome!
I’m Balla, the Griot. I come from a famous Griot family who for centuries pass on the real cultural stories from my beautiful Africa from generation to generation. These are exciting stories about heroes and heroines, fairy tales about special animals and mythical creatures, but also stories full of wisdom and metaphors.
In my artistic children’s book collection The Chronicles of Ubuntopia I take you on an adventure, far away from here, to other cultures that you might know… I will take you to my magical Africa. The continent that is rich in many cultural stories that we can still learn from today.
We must start now because: if the stories get lost in the fog and their power dies, then
the world will really get dark…
