Lawrence, Arwen The Tree and the Donkey Who Loved to Sing Music,
Performing Arts- Storytelling,
Performing Arts- Dance
Mexican Music, Dance and Storytelling For 14 years the music ensemble Cascada de Flores has served as ambassadors of Mexican and Caribbean music and dance. Their family programming uses traditional music, storytelling and dance to weave together cultural lessons into bilingual and highly participatory programs. They reach over 75,000 youth in schools, libraries, and cultural centers throughout the West, and are featured in Californian venues such as Montalvo Arts Center and the Lobero Theater. El Árbol explores Mexican folk music, exploding with rhyme, fun musical instruments and sweet characters. In a bilingual weave that entices participation, the duet tells the story of a lonely tree and a donkey who loves to sing. Their communication is the percussive dance of the tree and the rhythms of the donkey jaw bone. Their music attracts the birds, the animals and one human: abuelito. The life cycle turns and with the donkey’s jaw bone and the wood of the tree abuelito makes musical instruments; the dance of his townsfolk becomes the heartbeat of the tree. Children and their families are invited to sing, dance and play. Program loved by ages. Duet or Trío (larger venues) “Now I’m glad I’m Mexican.” -Elementary Student, Richmond, CA
