Madre Africa: African Heritage in Latin America

Tuesday, February 5, 2019

There is also a 10:15 AM showing of this event!

Learn how African cultures influenced and inspired fascinating rhythms, instruments and musical styles, such as candombe, festejo, tango, and salsa. As we travel through South America and the Caribbean, hear how each country developed its own blend of cultural and religious traditions while sharing a similar African heritage.

Tracing migration through music, geography and social studies, become lively subjects that are especially relevant in today’s diverse school and work environments! This fast-paced musical tour is interactive with clapping, dancing, and African-style call and response. Audience members can join the group on stage to try instruments and dance steps.

Curriculum Connection: History, Language Arts 

Ages: Recommended for grades K-5
