“The Tree and the Donkey who loved to sing” AKA “El Abuelo”
A bilingual and participatory story exploding with the song, ancient musical instruments, poly-rhythms and sweet characters of Mexican music and dance. For Theaters, Schools, Libraries and perhaps under a tree somewhere...
Cascada de Flores celebrates 15 years of working with and performing for youth of all ages and backgrounds.
'“El Arbol” is a beautiful gift to any child and parent. The bilingual storytelling is intelligently engaging, featuring charming characters full of artistry, music and fun. The kids eagerly completed el abuelito’s sentences and couldn’t wait to get on stage – which they did, several times.' Leida Tolentino, UCSB MultiCultural Center
