At only 12, Jato Sonita leads a group of teenage singers called Forest Children. One thing that is very striking about her and her co forest singers is their sense of ness – their deep love for nature, African culture and cultural values which clearly resonate in their costumes and style. 

Sonita and the forest kids use plantain leaves to produce their costumes and you will always find some of them hitting drums made from local instruments while another grinds pepper on a local grinding stone as they go on with their music – a typical African style.
