Pre-school and young school-age children and their caregivers are invited to the Audubon Center in Prospect Park for a free event, May 18, 2-4 p.m. Musicians and storytellers Hasan Bakr and Kevin Nathaniel will introduce the children to the sounds of Africa and the African Diaspora through the story of a young musician, a magician, and how they save their village from the evil giant Abiyoyo. Instruments include the djembe, mbira, bongo, and shekere.

After the performance, children are invited to take part in a craft activity inspired by the Abiyoyo story. Free copies of the book “Pete Seeger’s Storysong Abiyoyo” will be distributed courtesy of Simon & Schuster.

The Audubon Center is in Prospect Park; enter on the east side of the park at Lincoln Road. Follow the road into the park and keep going until you get to the duck feet on the ground that lead the way under a bridge and to the center.
