Mama Edie McLoud Armstrong, an African Native American, is a bilingual storyteller, voiceover artist and percussionist of the Drum Divas. She travels the world, weaving songs into stories in Yoruba, Twi, Sanskrit, English, Cherokee, Sign Language and Spanish. She seamlessly blends Spanish and English into tailor-made interactive performances for students and adults. She was awarded a National Storytelling Network Grant and a RaceBridges Fellowship for her residency “What About the Children?” encouraging refugee children to tell their own stories. Mama Edie’s personal, historical and folk tales encourage self-knowledge and empowerment, learning to see the light in everyone, and daring all to make a difference.
