Teachers at the Old Town School

Shanta Nurullah

Wiggleworms Program, Electric Bass, Sitar

Shanta plays piano, guitar, djembe, mbira, bass, and sitar. She performs with Evolution Ensemble and Great Black Music Ensemble. Shanta travels the country telling stories and playing cool instruments from India, Africa, and China. She presents storytelling programs at festivals, colleges, museums, schools, and libraries. Shanta is the recipient of an Illinois Arts Council Artist Fellowship Award and a Parents’ Choice Silver Honor Award. Joining the Wiggleworms family brings together Shanta’s two greatest loves--music and young children. Raising her own four children, she delighted in making up songs for just about everything--the names, riding in the car, taking a bath and more! She’s excited to sing and play with you!
