Musics of Mexico

 As the largest Spanish-speaking population in the United States, increased awareness and understanding of Mexican culture and traditions is particularly relevant to the multicultural education of today's students. With Marimba Sol de Chiapas as your tour guide, The Musics of Mexico takes students on a virtual musical tour of four of Mexico's best known regional musical styles. The multimedia program incorporates pre-recorded music, a visual presentation, extensive audience interaction, and live musical performances into a wonderfully engaging visit to our friends ‘South of the Border'. Bring the rich culture, history, language, and geography of Mexico to life at your school with The Musics of Mexico!



NOTE: This bilingual program is available in both principally English and principally Spanish language versions.
