Let's sing Latin America!

Mónica Prada

Latin America | New classes

This group workshop offers the discovery of a varied repertoire of songs in Spanish: from children's rhymes and popular rhymes, to traditional songs from various Latin American countries. Spanish-speaking children will be able to deepen their connection with Latin American culture and strengthen their knowledge of Spanish. Other children will have the opportunity to learn a new language and open up to a new culture.
Nursery rhymes and songs from the oral tradition represent a great cultural wealth and are a primary source of language learning. They are also a precious tool in musical education, promoting the development of sensory faculties and the construction of musical sense.
This journey around "folkloric" music will lead the children to discover various rhythms: arrullo, bullerengue, cumbia (Colombia), joropo (Venezuela), chacarera (Argentina), son cubano (Cuba), son jarocho (Mexico). Through their own bodies, the children will be able to feel and express these rhythms, to integrate them and accompany their songs.
The class lasts 60 minutes and includes a time of relaxation and vocal warm-up with simple and playful exercises.
