The Story of Babar by Jean de Brunhoff – a classic story of a little elephant who finds his place in the world, with lessons of understanding and hope. The brilliant and innovative British organist Tom Bell brings this moving story to life on the organ alongside narrator Oniatta Effendi, drama educator from NAFA, Singapore.
