Martin Espino, created this innovative program years ago and it still runs strong! This program visits many regions of Mexico, the different people who live there and different geographical areas and from the desert to the rain forest to the coast. This is a very upbeat program with lots of very unusual instruments making some very unusual sounds!!! If you're interested in booking this program, Martin can also provide an Aztec dancer to add dance to the program. The program is 100% interactive. Martin gently motivates audiences of ALL ages to "sing easy to sing songs" in native languages as well as play from the immense collection of native percussion that he brings to share! Martin studies nueroscience and it is a proven fact that "singing with someone else or playing music with someone else, stimulates the brain, so much, that it rejuvenates and lights up every region of the brain, which affects our well being. Playing music with someone is WAY MORE POWERFUL than watching a dance program; hearing your favorite singer or doing art.
