Show Notes

In this captivating episode of "Hear My True Story," you'll be treated to a heartfelt narrative as shared by Aldo Onyango, an artist with a unique talent for both music and storytelling. The enchanting song featured in this episode is a creation born from the combined talents of Edrine Matovu and Aldo Onyango themselves.

Aldo Onyango takes center stage to recount his personal journey in this episode, a tale that first unfolded in 2021 during the Black History Month celebration at the Hessisches Landestheater Marburg in Germany.

As a part of the Black History Month Marburg festivities, an engaging multi-part online workshop called "Storytelling" flourished. Participants were introduced to the art of "True Storytelling," and with the guidance of Otako, a passionate theater activist, actor, acting teacher, and storyteller from Marburg, they embarked on a creative journey to shape and share their own stories. The process was emotionally supportive and profoundly enriching.

Through Aldo Onyango's narrative, we explore those moments when one feels exceptionally strong, proud, and beautifully comfortable in their own skin. It's a journey into the essence of homecoming and empowerment. Alongside other remarkable storytellers, Onyango delves into these emotions and shares their personal tales of empowerment, each filled with authenticity and insight.

Mark your calendars, as these compelling stories will be presented digitally online at 7:30 p.m. on April 25, 2021, as part of this extraordinary Black History Month celebration.

When Aldo Onyango isn't gracing the stage with his captivating stories or creating music, he dedicates his time to education as a certified educator in Germany. For those eager to experience more of the enchanting music of Aldo Onyango and Edrine Matovu, their melodic offerings can be found on all major online music platforms.
