You may think you know why elephants have long trunks, or why bats hang upside down… but as this colourful new show will soon reveal – the reason for each is a whole other story! Tinga Tinga Tales is a British-Kenyan children’s show based on African animal folk tales and the Tinga Tinga artwork of Tanzania (http://www.tingatinga.org/), and brings to life the traditional art of storytelling with tall tales of how all your favourite animals came to be the way they are today. Produced in Nairobi, Kenya by Tiger Aspect Productions in conjunction with Homeboyz Entertainment, the show draws upon the inspiring talent of local artists and musicians and is expertly computer-animated using beautiful, hand-painted imagery.
