Songs and Stories: Folktales and Fun with Shanta

Join us for a special story hour in BING Reading Room co-hosted by Kidoand 57th Street Books. We will have the amazing Shanta Nurullah as our storyteller! Shanta plays piano, guitar, djembe, mbira, bass, and sitar. She performs with the AACM and her own band, Sitarsys. Shanta travels the country telling stories and playing cool instruments from India, Africa, and China. She presents storytelling programs at festivals, colleges, museums, schools, and libraries. Shanta is the recipient of an Illinois Arts Council Artist Fellowship Award and a Parents’ Choice Silver Honor Award. Raising her own four children, she delighted in making up songs for just about everything--the names, riding in the car, taking a bath and more! She’s excited to sing and play with you!
