Be swept away by the majesty, passion and music of West Africa in this epic tale of love, courage and strength that’s been told in Mali for centuries.

The Birth of Sundiata Keita, visionary leader of the great Malian empire, is told across West Africa as a history of kingship and battle.  Jan Blake, one of the world’s leading and best-loved storytellers, together with two exceptional West African born musicians, Kouame Sereba and Raymond Sereba, share a rarely told perspective on the story story of the extraordinary circumstances of this legendary leader’s birth.

This tale reaches across the centuries, from its origins in 13th century Africa to the recent conflicts of our own time when its telling was forbidden.  Enjoy a powerful and uplifting performance filled with majesty, passion and music.
