Bilingual musical duo Cascada de Flores will perform at the Brentwood Community Center at 35 Oak St. on Wednesday, Sept. 11 at 6:30 p.m.
Cascada de Flores will perform “El Abuelo (The Tree and the Donkey who loved to sing),” a bilingual, highly participatory and original story told with the instruments, rhythms and dance of Mexico. All ages will enjoy this free 45-minute program, presented by the Brentwood Library, and followed by a hands-on audience session with traditional instruments.
2019 marks the 20th anniversary of Cascada de Flores, who has performed throughout California and Mexico. Dancer and musician Arwen Lawrence toured with Grammy-winning mariachi group Los Camperos de Nati Cano before joining forces with Jorge Liceaga, who specializes in a guitar style called "Yucatan Swing."
