Part of TeachRock's LADAMA collection, this lesson teaches students to play Colombian Cumbia by using their own voices and bodies as instruments. They will familiarize themselves with how its traditional drums are played, how a percussion ensemble works, and will sing in Spanish and dance traditional Cumbia steps. Through these activities students will learn how to use their body as an instrument and explore Cumbia as a cultural practice that continues to change with the creativity and innovation of its members.
