Getting there
3014 Holiday Drive, New Orleans, LA

Discover the social and cultural connections of the rhythms of the djembe and balafon from West Africa, the berimbau and pandeiro from Brazil, and the rumba from Cuba, as they are performed by two accomplished artists. Children will also have an opportunity to learn some of the dances that accompany these rhythms, as well as how to "improvise" and create their very own musical phrases. ( More )
