Ritmos is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization based in Sacramento, California. Ritmos consists of 3 musicians who will take you on an exploration of the world of Latin rhythms and Latin percussion instruments. Geared toward students of all ages, the presentation will familiarize you with Latin rhythms, the cultural history of Latin rhythms, and the names and sounds of Latin percussion instruments.

MISSION

Our mission is to increase cultural awareness by familiarizing participants with Latin rhythms, the cultural history of Latin rhythms, and the names and sounds of Latin percussion instruments.

PRESENTATION

The Ritmos presentation has been developed based on the belief in the importance of music as a means of cultural expression. The Ritmos presentation provides a bridge for increasing cultural awareness and can enhance classroom discussions regarding cultural awareness and Latino culture.

The presentation provides:

Live demonstrations of rhythms such as the Cha-Cha-Cha, Bolero, Montuno and Plena

Live demonstrations of Latin percussion instruments such as the Congas, Timbales and Bongo

Discussion of the cultural history and influences of Latin rhythms

Opportunities for audience participation
