On May 8-9, 2018 Musical Bridges Around the World held 5 performances in schools as part of our Kids to Concerts Educational Outreach Program and 1 performance in a senior center as part of Golden Age Retirement Community Outreach Program. Indian Guitarist Oliver Rajamani, flamenco dancer Tamara Adira and Indian dancer Preya Patel performed for students at the following Elementary schools: Price, Margil, Riverside, Fernandez & Douglas.
MBAW’s interactive and exciting program incorporated TEKS and STEM curriculum-teaching Indian culture and geography through music. About 3,200 children learned about rhythm & sound, history, ethnic instruments & language during the 40 minute program. Rajamani brought the history of the Romani people and Flamenco music and dance to San Antonio Schools. Rajamani performed on the flamenco guitar, oud, percussion and voice accompanied by flamenco dancer Tamara Adira and Indian dancer Preya Patel. Together they will took students on a journey through the Romani trail that starts in India and ends in Spain through dance and music.
