About Tinga Tinga Tales – the Musical
Based on Tinga Tinga Tales the animated series, the Musical
Is a gloriously interactive and raucus live show designed to entertain the whole family. Written and directed by original creators of the TV show Claudia Lloyd and composed by Eric Wainaina, the musical will take its audience on a wonderful theatrical journey where they will sing with the Dawn Chorus, interact with their favourite characters from the TV series, help Giraffe get out of sticky situation and delight in seeing how Chameleon transforms from the greyest of grey things into an explosive Afrofusion Master of Colour. Everyone will sing, dance, laugh and cry… but most of all they will all have a TingaTingaTastic Time.
Written by Claudia Lloyd I produced by Sheba Hirst I music by Eric Wainaina I choreographed by Mkamzee Mwatela.

Beneficiaries of this event are students in the Christ the Teacher Institute for Education component of Tangaza University College. Fifty of these future teachers hail from Kibera (Kibra) and other slums of Nairobi and they cannot afford the necessary school fees.
All proceeds from this event will go to assist them in continuing their education.
The concert is set to raise funds for an ambitious development programme the school has embarked on. Eric Wainaina, one of Kenya’s greatest musicians, has graciously agreed to hold this concert in support of Waldorf education in Kenya at The Nairobi Waldorf School in Karen starting at 8.00 pm
