The Drum and the Seed

Ti Zwazo’s wicked stepmother has put the child to an impossible task: go to the house of the Spirit of Death and bring home his most vital secret. On her journey she meets three nature spirits and a magic bird, each of whom helps her win entrance to the underworld—and the secret. Can she use this sacred knowledge to bring life back to her dying village?

Find out when Makandal presents a reading of this neo-folktale of struggle, hope, and respect for Earth. With art by Kesler Pierre.
