Story Central: "Out of Africa" with Baba Lyons

Saturday, March 23, 2019

It’s a cultural experience you won’t want to miss! Boca Raton Public Library continues its 2019 Story Central theme, “Cultural Connections,” with a performance by accomplished storyteller, Baba Lyons. A graduate of the National Black Theater of Harlem, Baba Adekemi Lyons is a storyteller, actor and musician who has entertained audiences with stories and songs from his African heritage for more than 25 years. Among his numerous awards, he is a 2003 State of Florida Cultural Affairs Fellow, and he has won an artistic achievement award from the Broward County Cultural Affairs Council. In “Out of Africa,” Lyons blends actual events with traditional Zulu, Ashanti and Yoruba stories and songs that he learned from his grandmother. Using drums, kalimba (thumb piano), flute and other authentic instruments, he shares and celebrates his African heritage in this highly energetic and multi-dimensional show.
