Join musician Maura Mendoza at Harvard's Peabody Museum for an interactive workshop that explores the tradition of Latin music. During this event, Mendoza adapts her world music repertoire to introduce children to Latin American rhythms in a fun and interactive style. She performs Latin American children's classics, and shows how to keep the beat with the egg shaker, tambourine, and maracas. Participants can make their own maracas and take them home. With a rich background influenced by her upbringing in El Salvador and Panama, Mendoza grew up in a family that welcomed artists and musicians from Latin America. Her music is the result of this musical heritage. Sat., March 16, 12:30 - 1:15 p.m. Toddlers through age 7, accompanied by an adult. Free with Museum admission. Adults, $12; 65+, $10; ages 3- 18, $8; students with ID, $10; Harvard students and 1 guest, free; under 3, free. Reservations required; online reservations begin March 1. Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology, Harvard University, 11 Divinity Avenue, Cambridge.
