Ndoto is born! The big collaborative project between Umoja Music School and French artist, Colette Albiolo ( has begun! I’ve been writing all of the music for this big production that will involve instruments, percussion, dance, singing, and of course Colette’s amazing artwork projected larger than life! Ndoto means “Dream.” We titled this show Ndoto because it tells the story of little Maasai kids (our Umoja Ensemble) who dream that when the sun goes down, they turn into ants!!

In the first part of the story, they are playing and singing, just as normal Maasai kids. We had our first rehearsal for the first part last Friday (will teach them a new part each week). See the video at:

Life’s busy and good. That’s all for now!

  1. How exciting, for you to see it all coming together! I will wait to see the final piece, so I get the full effect.
