Put on some sturdy shoes, grab your canteen and get ready for a musical journey across the water from the continent of Africa to South America, from the Caribbean Islands to the shores of North America. Ritmo Blu guides students along the slave trade routes of the 1880’s, stopping to point out the impact Africans had on the music, instruments, rhythms and dances of Brazil, Cuba, Puerto Rico and the United States. When this unforgettable, interactive excursion ends, students will come away with a greater understanding and appreciation of Africa’s history, culture and legacy.
