From its inception Sones de México has taught and performed for thousands of children in cities around the U.S. The group embarks on a journey through Mexican music and the magic world that surrounds it. Children begin by learning about the four sacred elements of nature for the Aztecs: Water, Earth, Fire, and Wind. Students learn songs about different animals that inhabit the Mexican ecosystem, like the acamaya, the crocodile, the legendary mermaid, a mouse, a buzzard, a duck, and even a cat! They also clap Mexican rhythms and learn the difference between a slow and a fast tempo. First and foremost, students learn how fun it is to play and dance Mexican music. Fluency in Spanish is not required.
