The Tree & The Donkey Who Loved to Sing is a bilingual and participatory story exploding with the song, ancient musical instruments, poly-rhythms and sweet characters of Mexican music and dance. Through improvisation, the story explores Mexico’s diverse cultures and examines life and death in nature. In this lively performance, children and their families are invited to sing and play with the beautiful traditional songs and dances of Mexico.

“A exceptional show. The lively dancing, singing and bilingual storytelling delighted everyone in attendance, from the very youngest children to seniors.”—Teresa Capasso, Larkspur Library, Larkspur, CA

Cascada de Flores specializes in achingly beautiful songs from Latin America’s golden age, including bolero to fill your heart to bursting, rancheras to break it, and guarachas to make you want to dance. Your ears will be filled with the alluring voice of Arwen, the delicate playing of guitar and vocals by Jorge, accompanied by the strings of the bass and violin. Cascada de Flores offers an evening of song, zapateado (foot stomping) and nostalgia, spiced with a bit of creative Mexican humor.
