Ragui & Bagui is the name of the new children’s project by Eric Daro

Ragui & Bagui is the name of the new children’s project by Eric Daro that will be launched on 1st of June, the date that the world celebrates children’s day.

Daro, who is already a well-known artist, uses his art to educate and motivate children.

In 2018 the artist released his song ABC Localizan, which came with a music video with a lot of animation and learning.

The video was recorded in a school in Guinea-Bissau. It was the children’s version of the original song “Localizan” and aimed to alert and raise awareness both for adults and children about the importance of education.

Ragui & Bagui aims to educate children through educational content, games , music and a lot of entertainment.

Ragui which is the prefix of Rapaz / Rapacinho (boy ) and Gui the suffix of Guigui (Guinean).

As well as Bagui which is the prefix of Badjuda (girl) and the suffix of Guigui (Guinean).

It was the artist’s inspiration to create the project’s name in a way that did not create an ethnic name that could consequently cause social division.

Eric Daro believes that education has a crucial role in society, and it is important that we educate our children to value african culture.

The full episodes will be published on the official YouTube channel Ragui & Bagui and the first one will be release on 1st of June.
