Storyteller: Nuestro Canto

Nuestro CantoOn Wednesday, November 4 at 6:30pm at Raleigh Park Elementary School, local artists and performers, Gerardo Calderón and Nelda Reyes of the group Nuestro Canto, will present an original storytelling performance about Mexico with masks, movement, and music.

Mexico is well known for legends, myths, and tales that speak about love, nature, and everyday life. Mexican stories originate both from the ancient times of the Aztecs, Mayans, Toltecs, and Hucholes, as well as from after the arrival of the Europeans to the American continent. Nuestro Canto tells stories from all over Mexico, and to further enhance the storytelling experience, they play music that they have composed especially for the tales that they tell during their performances.

No registration required and all ages are welcome.

This event is sponsored by the Friends of the West Slope Library.
