Performance of the children musical Group “El Rincón de la Marimba”, from Oaxaca, Mexico
The musical project “El Rincón de la Marimba”, from the Mexican state of Oaxaca, is making an international tour in Africa, and now its Kenya’s turn to hear them perform. The musical project “El Rincón de la Marimba”, was created to strengthen the appreciation of children towards the marimba. This programme has promoted the creation of 16 child and juvenile marimba groups with the participation of almost 100 children from different communities of the state of Oaxaca, Mexico. The Project is aimed at rescuing the marimba music of the regions of the Isthmus, Papaloapanand Sierra Juárez, in Oaxaca, where the instrument was in danger of disappearing.
The Mexican Council for Arts and Culture (CONACULTA) and Harp Helu Foundation has provided support for the continuous training of 42 children in performing the Mexican musical instrument “marimba”, under the guidance of professorSotero Ruiz. This programme is aimed at promoting the tradition of this music with the support of the families, community and the government.
This Project was awarded the Coming Up Taller 2008 Award, from the USA. In 2009, it participated in the Bogota Book Fair; in 2010, it performed in the World Expo in Shanghai, China, at the Kennedy Centre in Washington, D.C. and in the commemoration festivities of the Mexican Revolution.
In this regard, the Embassy of Mexico and the Nairobi National Museum have the pleasure to invite you to listen to this majestic performance of Mexican children between 12 and 15 years old, on Tuesday 17th September at 10am at the Amphitheatre of the said museum.
