Global Experiences – In 2019, a small group of middle school students partook in a trip to Mexico to learn more about the nation’s history and culture. This year, join Project Success as we partake in events from around Mexico from the comfort of our homes.

Tambuco

What: Concert

Description: Tune in for this performance through the Library of Congress. Tambuco is a group of four top percussionists that will be playing live from Veracruz, México. They have been performing for twenty-five years and weave numerous instruments into their music. “Tambuco is versatility, originality and virtuosity in a musical communion that describes and celebrates our diversity and unites the ancestral origin of percussion with the future of musical languages.” Ricardo Gallardo, Artistic Director (Quote from the Library of Congress website.)
