STORY TIME – Fiesta en México with Bilingual Birdies Band at Sugar Hill Children’s Museum

Join us for a multi-cultural, musical program by Bilingual Birdies Trio, three Latin musicians who are pioneers in the family music scene. In this highly energetic performance, a group of friends goes to a tropical dance party in Oaxaca, Mexico. As our protagonists make their way to the party, our young audience will learn new Spanish words together with heart-warming life lessons. The sounds of huapango, ranchera, cumbia, and samba will create an unforgettable show celebrating the rich cultural heritage of Latin America!

The program will be followed by original and engaging art-making activities for the entire family!

About Story Time: Tales on Sugar Hill
Story Time: Tales on Sugar Hill is a series of curated programs that aim to provide children with a meaningful, interactive and fun art experience.  Grounded in our curatorial mission to share stories through theater, music, dance and visual art, as well as oral and literary forms, Story Time presents tales, fables, histories, and myths that genuinely reflect the diverse ethnic and cultural milieu of our surroundings.  Story Time also leverages the Museum’s own art exhibitions to foster richer engagement with, and a deeper understanding of, public art already on view.  Held every second Saturday of each month, each two-hour presentation includes a participatory art activity facilitated by teaching artists from the community, so children not only experience others’ stories, but also reflect on what they see and hear, and create and share their own stories.
