Marlon Carey is a multitalented artist who is always looking for ways to help build community and inspire people to make positive changes to the world. As a storyteller, he weaves an intricate tapestry with words, using a variety of methods with respect to the Storyteller traditions of old. He is a full-time father of three remarkable children and three cats. 


FUNDA means to “to learn” in Zulu (one of the African languages spoken in South Africa). RIBS chose this name for the festival because storytelling is the most ancient way peoples of African descent (and other cultures as well) passed on history, traditions, and cultural knowledge. Not only that, it looks like FUN!
