Yellow Valley is a loveable, contemporary, musical-storytelling performance, created especially for children aged 2 to 4 years old, inspired by Kenyan children’s book Who’s Calling by Charity Waciuma. Join us as we recreate this quirky story with live African music, electronic vocal effects and energetic performances to tell the tale of a feisty little girl and her animal friends who strike up a disagreement with another, cheekier, little girl (and all her animal friends) across the valley.

“Yellow Valley… is where th etwo-to four years olds get their imagination taken on a story-telling adventure with a difference… It’s a vivid tapestry of sounds, rhythm, catchy songs and the kind of reiterations of words and actions little ones happily join in with.” MARY BRENNAN, THE HERALD ✭✭✭✭ READ FULL REVIEW
