Salima Sambala sings at the Zambezi (2013)
Salima is very interested and fascinated by elephants, as they are smart, good-natured, loyal and have a really good memory. She sets out on a journey through Africa and to the river Zambezi because she knows that many elephants live by the riverside. One morning, Salima stumbles upon a baby elephant that has tumbled into a hole and can’t get out again. Salima helps the little elephant to climb out of the hole, and he is so happy and thankful that he decides to travel further together with Salima. Their journey leads them along the Zambezi, they see amazing landscapes and meet many interesting people.
“Salima Sambala sings at the Zambezi” was a musical play for children ages 3 to 10, taking the young audiences on a journey to the sounds and sights of Africa. Through acting, puppets, musical instruments, acrobatics and lots of songs faraway places were brought to life.
