Award-winning storyteller and jazz vocalist Eshu Bumpus, regales us with a story of Anansi, a lazy trickster who just keeps getting pulled from his TV by a family who demands to be fed. Anansi devises a plan to start stealing from the garden of the neighboring granny by luring her with a perfect song to boogie to. Anansi starts singing a jig and gets Granny dancing right out of her garden long enough for him to raid it. But Granny won’t take these tricks for long. Find out how she fights him off in Eshu’s Dancing Granny (Carribean Folktale) from his album Dancing Granny and Other Tales to Boogie to.
