Heartbeat of the Americas
Heartbeat of the Americas explores the indigenous music of the Western Hemisphere. Discover how Native North American sounds synthesized with the music of Central and South America, the Caribbean, and Africa in the New World. Songs and instruments, legend and history are cast in the interplay of cultures as Mary plays cedar flute, frame and steel drums, guitar, and mandolin. Taking part in the musical celebration, the audience gains an appreciation of the cultures as well as confidence in their own inner gifts of rhythm and song.
