The Tree & The Donkey Who Wanted to Sing


This is a bilingual and participatory story exploding with the song, ancient musical instruments, poly-rhythms and sweet characters of Mexican music and dance. Inspired by the ensemble's travels to Veracruz, Mexico, where old traditions are kept alive by generations of families in the countryside, this story speaks of the diversity of roots in Mexico. Improvisation and inventiveness, life and death in nature, and the making of musical instruments and song are strong themes highlighted in this program. Through music from the Mexican regions of Veracruz, Guerrero and Jalisco, this story is presented in such a way that themes are accessible to all. Children are invited to sing along and even come up on stage to dance in this humorous and heartwarming assembly.
