Eshu changed our lives for the few days he was here. His effect has stayed with us. Children can still be heard singing, "Palm tree dance, dance... All around the market place, dance... He is the best storyteller I have ever heard".

Susan Friend, Cultural Arts Coordinator and Teacher - Green Acres School - Rockville MD



Public Performances

In school programs, Eshu follows his assemblies with classroom workshops in Storytelling and Creative Writing Using the Folktale as a Model. The Writing Process is broken down into discrete, conceptually accessible tasks so that each student can experience success with writing.

In performance, Eshu offers African and African American or World Folktales in a unique blend of traditional and Jazz music to create a unique and enriching family experience.
