Madre Africa – African Heritage in Latin America

Prince George’s Publick Playhouse

Description: 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.

Recommended for grades K-5. Curriculum Connections: History, Language Arts.

Tickets: $8/person, $6/groups of 20 or more
