The things I bring for Trøndertun

 

I’m in Trøndertun and ready to learn everything and teach my new friends about my culture. I choose to sing African songs in all my performances and it’s good because people like it and give me good feedback.

The vocal class had a concert in Trondheim and I sang an African song. The place was packed with both Trøndertun students and others.

This was my first concert. It was a part of Kulturnatt or culture night in Trondheim. I’m standing here with my friends and band from school.

This is the moment I showed off my African dance skills and made both my band and the audience dance with me.

In the beginning it was not easy to play my song for the band because they are used to playing other music than African, but they did perfect!

It was a very happy day for me.
