Larry Mitchell's insight:

Making a presentation is like walking up to strangers on the street and launching into your ideas. Your audience may not have a lot of background on the topic. And even if they do, they have other things on their minds and may not be as ready to hear what you have to say as you think they are.

Traditional Storytelling in Africa

Storytelling traditions of the world, past and present. Information and resources for understanding the oral tradition in all cultures.
Larry Mitchell's insight:

One thing to bear in mind is that in many old traditions storytelling is synonymous with song, chant, music, or epic poetry, especially in the bardic traditions. Stories may be chanted or sung, along with musical accompaniment on a certain instrument. Therefore some who would be called folk musicians by foreign music enthusiasts are just as accurately called storytellers - their true roles are more profound, as their names reflect: bards, ashiks, jyrau, griots amongst many more.
