A fundraiser in support of art-educational workshops for children who have lived with domestic violence.
This workshop offers the opportunity for young survivors of domestic violence to be heard, to tell their own stories in their own words, and to use music to find and grow their strength.
Children age 10 to 14 will receive instruction on the ukulele in tandem with a history and inspection of the Blues, write and record two pieces of their own. Guided by discussion and encounters with stories of dignity, respect and self discovery, participants collaborate to produce two story-songs on the theme of their happiest and saddest family memories.
Rosy Cervantes and Sana Rabia
Rosy Cervantes and Sana Rabia have an artistic career of almost 20 years. Rosy is originally from Mexico, where she has participated in an impressive succession of international cultural events, such as Morelos International Festival in 2004, 2005 and 2006, the “Cervantino” Festival, up to the International Blues Encounter in Mexico in 2011. That’s the year Rosy came to live in Toronto, where she has continued participating in noteworthy festivals such as the Word and Image Festival in 2014, MexFest at Dundas Square, and at the Celebration of Independence of Mexico at Nathan Philips in 2014 and 2015. These events have allowed her to become well known on the Toronto scene.
Come join Rosy and Richard to celebrate the 205 Anniversary of the Mexican Independence Day this next Tuesday September 15th at Yonge-Dundas Square.
