The Old Woman, The Buffalo and The Lion of Manding is produced by Adverse Camber productions, one of the UK’s most celebrated storytelling companies, in association with the Akua Storytelling Project. 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.
Filled with songs of the Gban people, provided by brothers Raymond & Kouame Sereba, the Old Woman, The Buffalo & The Lion Of Manding has energised audiences around the world. Guitars, Nordic flutes, djembe drums, kalimbas & the extraordinary dodo (mouth bow) cradle the story in an evocative soundscape.
