Black, Marc A History of the 1950's and '60's through Popular Song. History,
Music
In this engaging and humorous program, the audience relives this colorful time in our history. I'll use a wide range of songs including surprising, memorable favorites like Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie Yellow Polkadot Bikini, great rock tunes like Blue Suede Shoes and moving folk songs like Bob Dylan's blowing in the Wind. This program is musical, thought provoking and always leaves the audience feeling good about where we are... and where we've been. You can see many reviews on my website… http://www.marcblack.com/web3/history-of-the-1950s-60s-through-popular-song/.)

Students will be experiencing a new culture in a fun and exciting way, they will get a chance to see and at times touch the ancestral drums. The taiko drum has the power to touch everyone with its thunderous sounds and vibrations. Taikoza hopes to open the students’ eyes to the richness of the Japanese culture and spark an interest. We hope that this will spark an interest in other world cultures. Taiko has been associated with many aspects of Japanese culture since ancient times. It is said that Taiko was used to drive away the plague and evil spirits. In the Shinto religion, it was used to call upon and entertain the gods, or kami, and in Japanese Buddhism, its sound was the manifestation of the voice of the Buddha.
