ASSEMBLY PROGRAM DESCRIPTION:
Malicounda can create a community-based performance for all kinds of events, for companies, schools, and festivals. Student volunteers are chosen and given a 60-minute workshop to create the performance. The volunteers perform on stage with Malicounda!
Our goal is to bring people together by making music as a group and to provide a multicultural experience with musical instruments from around the world. The technique used is accessible to everybody. Volunteers will be encouraged to create their own music.
By sharing with students, teachers, and the community, we open minds to the world. Participating in an interactive group performance using drums and other percussion instruments allows all voices to be heard.
