Diane performs “Magic Bird and Other Rainforest Tales” for adult learners and their families at the Adult Learning Center in New Bedford, MA. This performance is Diane’s second visit to the center.
The Magic Bird and Other Rainforest Tales
From the banks of the Amazon River to the heart of the West African jungle, this performance brings to life favorite folktales and songs about the animals and plants of the rainforest. Legends tell why the Amazon Birds have feathers as brilliant as the colors of the rainbow and how Jabuti the tortoise tricked the Amazon monster Kibungo into sparing the lives of three-toed frog, jaguar and monkey. Audiences love joining in with the songs and chants from many cultures.
This event is funded in full by the LCC, a local agency administered by the Mass Cultural Council, a state agency.
