¡Canta Conmigo! Songs and Singing Games from Guatemala and Nicaragua. The Feierabend Association for Music Education is pleased to host Rachel Gibson for this special FREE Webinar.
Come sing, play, move, create, and experience joy with living musical traditions from Central America. Participants will engage in repertoire that the presenter learned while living in Guatemala and Nicaragua. The music was collected from playgrounds, classrooms, and families, and represents diverse practices that span from traditional songs and singing games to contemporary children’s music that utilizes recorded media. The activities allow for musical play and movement, encourage lyrical improvisation, and foster community. The Spanish texts are accessible to learn and field videos will be shown to demonstrate the songs’ authentic contexts. ¡Ven a cantar y jugar! Come sing and play!
