Musical Ancestries: Native America
Musical Ancestries is a quarterly program designed to teach school-aged children about world music. This new episode explores the music, instruments, dance, pow wows, and cultural traditions of Native Americans. The new episode, “Native America,” debuts at 10 a.m. Feb. 20, following “Classics 4 Kids,” the station’s weekly show that introduces children to great works of classical music. The episode will air again at 7:00 p.m. Feb. 21, and 2:00 p.m. Feb. 24 as well as being available through their website.
Incorporated in a Prezi presentation are visual images, maps, audio clips, text and craft activities that students, teachers and parents can use to enhance their learning experience. Musical Ancestries is made possible through a grant from the PNC Foundation through PNC Arts Alive, a multi-year initiative dedicated to supporting visual and performing arts.
Musical Ancestries: West Africa, Central America, The Caribbean, India, and Jewish Music & Culture are also available online.
