Children's Choir of Africa
Cultures united when the Daraja Children’s Choir performed at Shallowford on Sunday, April 9. Their message of joy and hope through African song and dance was inspirational. Daraja means “bridge” in Swahili, and this Choir, made up of 24 children from Uganda and Kenya, serves as a bridge to connect the people of Africa and America, providing a life-changing opportunity for these children to learn and experience American culture, and at the same time, for Americans to step into the lives of these children by hearing their testimonies and experiencing traditional African song and dance. People came from as far away as Baltimore to see this children perform.
