Story telling

During the last few years I have written down old Gambian stories and even written my own stories from The Gambia. Through Studiefrämjandet in Stockholm I have edited a book called "The Story Teller's Children" and a CD to go with it. The stories have been recorded by a Swedish actress called Ingrid Luterkort and between the stories there are short pieces of African music and singing.

Thanks to that book I have attended a couple of festivals for authors, where I have read and told my stories. As a musician I have performed at different music festivals in Scandinavia and in Latvia.
