Learning about Latin American music’s interesting and unique genres and instruments, students dive into the history and influences that created each country’s diverse styles of music. Latin American Music Part Two explores the music in countries of South America. We start in Colombia with Cumbia and Vallenato music and it’s instruments like the caja, guacharaca and gaita flute. In Venezuela, we discover the genre known as Joropo which features instruments like the bandola Ilanera and contrabajo. Argentina and Brazil have amazing music to dance to – Tango and Samba. We conclude with Guarania from Paraguay and Cueca from Chile. The Fun Fact is a fun look at the Latin Grammy’s and the diverse artists that are honored.

COURSE NOTE: This course has one version of the video for grades 3-8. It can be taught to K-2, but we ask that you please preview before presenting to any younger students to decide on suitability. For our youngest students, we recommend teaching our Culture courses in 2-4 separate sessions to fully engage young attention spans.
