Looking forward to performing “Quien Fuera” to young Latinx/Chicanx students this fall!

Overview

Primero Sueño, a contemporary world-folk band, will tour local LA schools with high-risk Latinx youth, performing original music with dance and conducting music workshops. Primero Sueño will inspire and uplift underprivileged students aged 11–14 through music, and encourage high cultural self-esteem. By focusing on schools in regions with high rates of gang violence, child prostitution, and domestic abuse, we will demonstrate music as an outlet for expressing oneself that is emotionally healthy, intellectually stimulating, and empowering. Primero Sueño features zapateado, a Mexican tap-dance style that doubles as percussion in a music ensemble, combined with contemporary dance. We will teach rhythm and vocals in our workshops. This school tour will take place November 2018.
