Tales of East Africa: Folktales from Kenya, Uganda, and Tanzania
This collection of 22 traditional tales from Kenya, Uganda, and Tanzania welcomes the reader to a world of magical adventure—a place where a boy spares the life of a fearsome monster, a flock of doves brings a girl back from the dead, and a hare wreaks havoc among all the other animals. Translated and transcribed by folklorists and anthropologists in the early twentieth century, these stories evoke the distinctive beauty and irresistible humor of East African folklore. This visually gorgeous book pairs each tale with bold and vibrant illustrations by artist Jamilla Okubo.
MIM’s Africa Gallery includes more than 50 displays highlighting the significance of music and musical instruments in the lives of a wide array of peoples throughout this vast continent.
