Shumba Records and Bana Kuma present
The Legend of Yauna
Experience the mind-bending fantasy and unique musical experience of The Legend of Yauna, created by Grammy Award-winning composer Chris Berry, reinvented by director/choreographer Maija Garcia (creative director of the Tony Award-winning Broadway production FELA!), and starring Afro-European vocalist Marie Daulne (Zap Mama) as the black panther queen.
Yauna’s story is a mystical journey through Water, Earth and Fire tribes, where names were not spoken, but sung. In a desperate quest to save his ailing father and rejoin his wife and daughters, the fictional Yauna is faced with seemingly impossible challenges at every turn, revealing the power of non-violence, self-sovereignty, and forgiveness. The audience will soon see that in the world of The Legend of Yauna, music changes everything.
