Baba Ras D, whose name means "Father of Kings and Queens", is the creator of "Harambee." Every presentation offers a creative atmosphere "where the children celebrate learning through movement and song." In Swahili, Harambee means "All pull together." "Harambee" is the practice of hope, possibility and compassion -- basically, all the things that happen when we all come together.

Baba Ras D is pleased to offer this original 'musical enlightenment' for your group of children to explore. Think of it as your little one's first opportunity to express his or her voice (into a microphone), dance, play a drum or percussion instrument, shout, or sing-along to songs that build character, confidence and community.

With more than 10 years of experience in youth development, education, and conflict resolution, Baba Ras D's "Harambee" is a morning jolt of inspiration for parents, caregivers and children. Baba Ras D services dozens of child care centers in the Metropolitan Washington, DC area, ranging from private day care centers, community centers, churches, and senior homes to independent child care centers, Montessori child care centers/schools, the Department of Interior Child Care Center, Housing and Urban Development (HUD) day care, and birthday parties.

Baba Ras D is proud to present "Harambee" in collaboration with BloomBars. BloomBars is working to inspire and unite communities through the arts. Their goal is to help foster personal and collective growth while cultivating a legion of artists to be the catalyst for community transformation across the globe.
