Workshop

Songs in Spanish / 11 - noon

In the workshop, we will experience the richness of Spanish-Speaking musical traditions. We will learn some basic Spanish pronunciation, and learn the harmonies and rhythms of popular songs in Spanish such as “Guantanamera,” “Viva la gente,” “Somos el barco,” “Eres tú,” “Gracias a la vida,” “Te recuerdo, Amanda.” These songs from Spain and Latin America tell stories of people’s hopes and sorrows, their dreams and experiences.
