Where the joy of movement and the power of inclusion intertwine, proving that dreams can soar when we unmute our spirits and let the rhythm guide us.

Through Tumi's uplifting story, young readers will learn the power of perseverance, the beauty of inclusivity, and the limitless possibilities that arise when we embrace our differences. Unmute the Rhythm invites children to celebrate the unique gifts within themselves and others, inspiring them to break down barriers and participate fully in the arts and in society.

This story is inspired by the life of South African Deaf Choreographer and Dancer, Andile Vellem. It is in no way an autobiographical account of his extraordinary story.
