What an awesome performance! I booked Umoja People for a Black History event. The Civil and Human Rights Committee of UAW Local 551 was honored to have Umoja People be a part of our Black History event. They brought with them a presence of Peace and Unity. Everyone loved their performance. I am truly thankful for them. The story teller was phenomenal, he put you in a place in time with his words. The drums awoke a fire in your spirit & the dancer captured your soul. The President of my local was very impressed and informed that he wants me to keep in contact with Umoja People for future events. If you're looking for an Ensemble group book Umoja People! They will definitely deliver! Peace
Kipley was excellent!
Awesome talented story teller
Chris was perfect for our 3 year olds birthday party. He was engaging and funny and was able to keep the attention of ten 3 year olds with his animated story telling. Chris was punctual and professional. I would recommend him for any kids birthday party!
Once upon a time, there were two friends who decided to create a very helpful website where you could easily find storytellers and other entertainment. Event planners would come from far and wide to search for fun and talented people to tell stories at their special events. For hiring a storyteller is a great way to engage and entertain your audience. Whether it’s youngsters at a birthday party, students at a school assembly, or adults at a corporate event, people of all ages love getting caught up in a good story. The end.
