Raices de Nuestra Musica/Our Musical Roots
In this assembly program, Quinteto Latino celebrates cultural awareness and pride by exploring the native songs, music, and languages of five countries. Each musician highlights a particular region and engages the audience through repetition and rhythm. Students can delve into the tropical history of Hawaii, singing along with "Aloha-Oe" or snap to the jazzy American tune "Take the A Train." Quinteto Latino encourages students to participate and help make cultural ties to their own home while exploring language and songs from all over the world and demonstrating how music is important to individuals and groups across the globe.
