In this multi-cultural curriculum, students discover the music, history, and culture of four distinct geographic destinations: West Africa, the Caribbean, South America, and the USA. Designed as a theatrical music production with a quartet of "Rhythm Hunters" as our guides, TRIH combines music played on drums and pitched percussion with an exciting choral piece that ties these diverse regions together in a celebratory grand finale! (Grades K-8)
Featured geographical regions and songs include:
West Africa - Djole
Caribbean - Calypso
South America - Tango
USA - Rock & Roll
