Len Cabral

An internationally acclaimed storyteller who has been enchanting audiences since 1976, Len Cabral is the great-grandson of a Cape Verdean whaler whose grandparents immigrated to America from the islands off the coast of West Africa. A Rhode Island resident, Len shares the beauty and compelling art of storytelling around the world, from small classrooms, to major festivals.

His art has taken him from the United States to Ireland, Belgium, Austria, Holland, and Canada. The recipient of the National Storytelling Network 2001 Circle of Excellence Oracle Award and a published author, Len’s contributions to the important cultural touchstone of sharing words in a meaningful and deeply profound way have made him a true icon in the history of oral tradition.

An event focusing on the rich arts and cultural heritage of our region and the fusion it shares with RIPR in promoting civil discourse and civic engagement would not be complete without Len. Rhode Island Public Radio is proud to have him as our official 20 Years of Sound + Vision Storyteller.
