Nandi Sings is the story of a very little girl who doesn't speak much at first, and instead makes up her own songs without words but with many sounds. And because the adults and siblings in her household all tell her to keep quiet, she sings while feeding the chickens and drawing in the sand. It's only her Gogo who encourages her to listen to the sounds of different animals and to keep singing. Even as she grows up, Nandi continues to follow the music in her heart and sings her own songs - even ones with words! Eventually, when she sings in the church choir, no one tells her to be quiet because they are all listening to her.
