ADAAWE Educational Performances
"ADAAWE certainly passed my “E” ticket ride test. Their performance entertained, enlightened and had energy. Most important – they snuck “Education” into the mix. I highly recommend ADAAWE as I am sure you have gathered by now!

DrumCircle and RhythmSong programs
"I didn’t believe that I really had the talent to sing (especially) but through Ms. Wilkinson’s encouragement and reinforcement I was able write with other participants, discuss lyrics relative to saving the environment and present this to the public through drumming.
The program also exhibited how strong, focused and passionate our youth were regarding the environment through their interaction with the entire group. Their views and input created awareness within me about the environment and served as a reminder to me that our youth have much to offer if we listen to them.
After practicing drumming, writing and singing with others, the final performance gave me encouragement to deliver the message of “saving the environment” to the community.It was something that rejuvenated me and a very awesome experience."
