Join Teaching Artist Jorge Orta with Young Audiences of Houston and celebrate the musical stylings and traditions of Latin and Brazilian percussion with celebrated artist Jorge Orta. As part of a workshop or longer-term residency, students will learn the origins, history, and rhythms inherent in samba, salsa, and more through collaborative music-making and shared performance. Our drummers will leave having a better understanding of world culture, the influence of music across various Latin countries, and have the opportunity to showcase their new talents in a shared performance setting, for each other and for their community. Recommended for ages 5 & older.
