Family Workshop: Ding-Dong, ¿Quien Es? Playing and Learning Latin Rhythms
Saturday, March 16, 2013 from 12:30 PM to 1:15 PM (EDT)
"Ding-dong, who is it?" Maura Mendoza adapts her world music repertoire to introduce children to Latin American rhythms in a fun and interactive style. She performs Latin American children's classics, and shows how to keep the beat with the egg shaker, tambourine, and maracas. Make your own maracas and take them home.
With a rich background influenced by her upbringing in El Salvador and Panama, Maura grew up in a family that welcomed artists and musicians from Latin America. Her music is the result of this musical heritage.
