Almost 30 years in the past, the Disney animated classic captivated fans around the globe with its warm narrative of determination and bravery as it follows Simba's journey from his early lion cub years to his rise to the throne as King. Incorporating Swahili and Zulu, this musical strikingly features five indigenous African languages, and the ensemble of performers participating plays a vital role in its accomplishments.
“Considering that The Lion King is incredibly infused with rhythms rooted in these [Gambian] traditions, sustaining enthusiasm for the show is natural," reveals Stefan Monssen, a percussionist trained in African techniques.
