"We found Dr. Mariama to be a sensitive and electrifying artist…She seamlessly integrated music, dance and theater with history and culture in a way that honored their lives. Dr. Mariama had them on their feet dancing and singing and being young again. …They rewarded her with multiple standing ovations."
