Last year they were Off-broadway and On-tour with their own original musicals, but now you can dance, sing, play and learn with the FunikiJam cast in online programs that are part high-energy class and part interactive live show (a 2021 Best of NYC Music Class) .
This special edition features Zydeco music - a spicy blend of Afro Caribbean Rhythms, Creole Culture and French language, original FunikiJam songs, stories, and rhymes about New Orleans Culture, and adaptations of African American folk songs like This Train is Bound for Glory.
After class be sure to check out the related videos on YouTube - and listen to music by Brian Barrentine and FunikiJam wherever you stream music.

Upcoming Schedule for the FunikiJam Show celebrates Black Musicians: NEW ORLEANS Mardi Gras Edition
You may already know and love FunikiJam from their YouTube videos, live stage shows Off-Broadway or classes all over NYC—and now you get to play with and interact with them (virtually) right from your own home!
Built on the original rhymes, chants, songs and stories of founder Brian Barrentine, FunikiJam started with a Nashville playgroup in 1999. Now, FunikiJam has evolved into a landmark early childhood education and entertainment organization with an annual reach of over 70,000 patrons. From NYC headquarters, FunikiJam delivers its trademark "music exploration for the next generation" across the globe through classes, live shows, musical recordings, film production and teacher training.
The unique programs are part class and part live show—with kids in the starring roles! At each session, FunikiJam-certified teaching artists (Agents of JAM) take the stage and invite the group to Sing-A-Long, Dance-A-Long and Play-A-Long with globe-spanning musical adventures.
