        6.  Salsa class/workshop: The history and culture behind the Latin traditions that contribute to the music we now categorize as “Salsa”.  From the Cuban “son” to the Venezuelan “valse” the Caribbean basin brings us many elements that are prominent in world popular music.  Learn to play several of the instruments that characterize these styles.  Peter Queal’s latest CD production of; Conjunto Varietal “DeCuba pa’Trinidad” ties in perfectly with this informative, interactive look at Salsa.   (grades 7 to adult) Materials requirements are as listed in activity 5.
