Songwriter in Residence at Zara Aina

Zara Aina is a group of theater artists that offers children in Madagascar the tools to succeed as students and story tellers by delivering school supplies to their villages and by producing their original works of theater. In March 2013, I established a week-long residency for Zara Aina at Bama Kids in Wilcox County, Alabama.  I wrote songs for Zara Aina's first show "Crocodiles and Husbands."
