The Arrowhead Library System is pleased to present COMPAS Teaching Artists Siama’s Congo Rootsa free program being offered for all ages at the Grand Marais Public Library on Wednesday, September 25, at 6 PM. This is a return of a performer that has been very popular in the past with Grand Marais library audiences.

When COMPAS Teaching Artists Siama Matuzungidi is joined by Dallas Johnson, their harmonies are inspiring, and their joy is contagious as they perform and inspire everyone to sing along. Siama and Dallas tell stories of life in Africa and encourage everyone to use their imagination to transport them to DR Congo. This sunny and joyful performance will leave everyone feeling energized and happy. For all ages. 

This program, sponsored by Arrowhead Library System, was funded in part or in whole with money from Minnesota's Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund (ACHF) and by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the ACHF. To learn more about Arrowhead Legacy Events, please see our calendar at, follow us on Twitter @ALSLibraryNews,or like us on Facebook at
