Jahruba selects stories that encourage young people to think for themselves.

The greedy hunter of Ibo village who found out the hard way about the power of greed...
Fulumbo of the Fulanis, the handicapped boy who saved his village from Zulu raiders with the magical rhythm of peace...
Ananzi, the spider, always up to his tricks...
Brer Rabbit, the tales as they come from Africa...
The meaning of LIIBO (limbo), how the contest began, how to play...

African drumming is a wonderful way to teach rhythm, song, dance, culture, discipline and self esteem.
