Amiria has been performing to children for several years, wowing them with her dynamic storytelling and guitar playing. She creates a show with a strong theme and a story-song relationship that children respond to enthusiastically. The children are encouraged to join in with singing, poetry and movement, culminating in the opportunity to use percussion instruments provided.
An experienced performer at Early Childhood Centres, and Arts Festivals, Amiria, along with her performance partner, were selected as the Children’s Entertainers at Womad 2010 in New Plymouth and again in March 2012.
