Stories from Asia and Africa

Eshu and Motoko shine up a storytelling event wherever they appear. Though diverse in style and culture, they blend and tell as one. Absolutely charming, they bring humor, a sense of drama, a talent for singing, and present a seamless performance. At the Connecticut Storytelling Festival where they recently appeared you could have heard a pin drop!

Peg O’Sullivan, Connecticut Storytelling Center

"Thank you so very much for being part of the Once Upon  A Lake Storytelling Festival, 2014 at Hammondsport! We were delighted to have you on the roster of tellers for this year.


Our audiences were enthusiastic about your tales, your talent and your ability to draw us into new and entertaining imaginative landscapes. We on the OUAL committee heard specifically from audience members that they lived sensitive musical accompaniment and your engaging singing and telling in the Saturday night performance."


OUAL Committee and Artist Liaison, Chris Holder
