A Musical Journey through the Caribbean
Experience the joyous and incredibly influential music of the Caribbean! Manguito is an ensemble that focuses equally in both "teaching and performing" the music of Cuba, Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic. In one hour, audiences are immersed into some of the most popular music styles of these marvelous islands. They learn about their culture, history, and influences, and how this music was born. The group introduces students to instruments used in Cuban "Son" and "Rumba", Puerto Rican "Bomba" and "Plena", and Dominican "Merengue" styles. Audiences get to participate as well by singing, playing some of the instruments (on-stage) and dancing.
