Dedicated to community as well as art, Marimba Sol de Chiapas is a teaching performance ensemble for Kansas City Young Audiences with well over forty years combined in-school presentation experience. One of Sol's specialties is their bilingual(Spanish/English) in-school program: The Musics of Mexico. Freshly-updated for Spring, 2012+ with exciting new content and a dazzling all-new visual presentation, The Musics of Mexico takes students on a virtual musical tour of four of Mexico's best-known regional musical styles. Through a multimedia presentation(no special equipment required--the program is completely self-contained) that seamlessly integrates prerecorded music, a dazzling visual presentation, engaging commentary with extensive audience interaction, and sparkling live musical performances, the rich culture, history, language, geography, and music of the United States' closest, yet often very distant neighbors "south of the border" comes alive!!!
