Interactive Cultural Workshop for Kids
All Around This World: Hands on the Tabla with Daniel Ando Scholnick
Held in the South America Room, 2nd Floor
Introducing "All Around This World" - interactive cultural workshops for families and their curious kids, the first Saturday of each month at 2pm!
International House joins All Around This World, a Philadelphia-based global music and world cultures program for small children, in presenting a monthly series of participatory cultural workshops that will be fun for the whole family. Hosted by All Around This World educators Jay Sand, Emily Bate and Melanie Hsu, each workshop will feature an experienced "culture bearer" from around the world who will invite you and your kids to engage in his or her traditional music or dance; learn samba rhythms or Brazilian capoeria, play a West African djembe or a North African doumbek, chant to tabla "bols." Explore different countries and cultures without having to worry about your toddlers toddling! Each workshop will last approximately 40 minutes and will invite you and even your tiniest kids to sing, dance and clap along. Best for grown-ups and their young kids, infants to 7 years old.
Daniel Ando Scholnick is a tabla player, guitarist, production manager and a sound designer based in Philadelphia. He trained with Lenny Seidman, of the Tabla Choir and Spoken Hand in Philly, before training in Music at Wesleyan University. He went on to study on a Fulbright Fellowship in Mumbai, India, to study Indian drumming under Pandit Arvind Mulgaonkar. He will introduce kids to tabla through playful, interactive rhythms and give everyone a chance to get their hands on the drums!
