About Me

KORA's founder, Anika Wilson, has been inspiring, entertaining and educating children, young people and adults of all ages for over a decade. Through her storytelling performances, the listener discovers the richness of their imagination. 

 

KORA Ltd was formed in 2009 and fulfilled Anika's lifelong ambition of sharing stories from her ancestral history with a new generation who know nothing of their cultural background but more importantly to increase awareness that collectively our stories are not that dissimilar. 

 

Born in London, England to Jamaican parents who came from a long line of Griots, storytelling came naturally for Anika.  As a child she remembers listening to her parents, uncles and aunts sharing stories from back home. Anika is part of a large family and her house was always filled with singing, music, dancing and of course stories! Growing up Anika would spend countless hours listening to her father tell stories from back home. He would get up and act out scenes and imitate family members and ‘duppies’ who somehow always appeared in his stories!  

 

On many occasion he would be joined by her Mother and her Uncles who would correct his stories by saying "No man, it no go so" and go on to tell their version of events. It was here that her love for story telling began. 

 

Anika has a passion for African, Caribbean folktales, folksongs, poetry and history. Her experiences as an Actor in comedy and theatre, Writer and her commitment to keeping her roots alive and celebrating her culture enables her to create stories that captivates and engages audiences of all ages.
