Passages: Exploring Migration Through Music
“Passages” is an interactive educational performance of world folk music from 9 countries and 6 continents. Using dialogue, colorful maps, and songs, Voci Angelica Trio traces the migration of early humans across the globe using the cello, djembe, claves, cuatro, maracas, shell shakes, tambourine stick, finger cymbals, doumbek and, of course, their voices. Audiences become part of the experience by answering questions about geography in a game show format and participating in songs.
