Themes: Music, Latin American Culture, History, Understanding

Children and grownups of all backgrounds adore the joyful and bright music of Sonia De Los Santos. Her songs, in both Spanish and English, reflect her inspiring journey of growing up in Mexico, moving to another country, learning about other cultures, and in the process, feeling closer to her own Mexican heritage. With sounds inspired by various Latin American rhythms from Mexico, Colombia, and Peru as well as North American folk traditions, Sonia weaves a personal musical story that touches on universal themes of understanding.

This Modlin Center virtual event includes one bilingual performance, two workshops on Latin American rhythms and instruments, and a performance guide with educational activities.

This virtual engagement of Sonia De Los Santos is made possible through the Mid Atlantic Tours program of Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation with support from the National Endowment for the Arts Regional Touring Program.

A 17-year-old boy from Syria wonders if he ought to learn German, or if he will be going home too soon for it to be of use. A young woman draws the map of her journey to Munich, wavy blue lines between Turkey and Greece marking the night her brother slipped over the side of an inflatable raft into the cold hands of the Mediterranean. A girl cherishes the recording of her mother’s voice she keeps on her cellphone. These young people are making maps of their history, of their memories, and of their futures. Created in collaboration by artist Kaneza Schaal and writer Christopher MyersCartography is a virtual theatrical work for young audiences that explores the commonalities of migration and mapping at the center of worlds in motion. 

This virtual engagement of Cartography is made possible through the ArtsCONNECT program of Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation with support from the National Endowment for the Arts.

Support funded in part by the E. Rhodes and Leona B. Carpenter Foundation and the Cultural Affairs Committee.
