Festival artists to host workshop
Last updated 8/4/2021 at Noon
Making Movies, an international rock ’n’ roll band known for its Latinx activism in the United States and abroad will be doing a public workshop on Saturday, August 14 at 1:30 p.m. on the back-lawn stage at the Sisters Artworks Building. The event is free and open to the public.
The workshop shows how experiencing music can reveal the underlying connection between us. From huapango to the blues, from son cubano to jazz, the band demonstrates that there is a link between all the rhythmic genres in the Americas. The workshop uses audience participation to demonstrate how the clave informs all rhythmic music in the west.
The band explains the value of each individual raising their voice to share their own unique perspective. The audience is asked to respond to three questions about their identity, and through music and group participation, a communal space is created for participants to share their story.
There are still tickets available for the performance Saturday night with Making Movies at the Sisters Artworks Building on a co-bill performance with Raye Zaragoza.
