Join us for another "On the Patio" series program at the Waldorf West Library! We will be celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month with Cantaré, as they take us on a musical journey through Latin America.

In the event of inclement weather, this event will take place in the Waldorf West Meeting Rooms. Please proceed to the Front Doors for entry if the event has been moved inside.

In this program, you will be transported to Latin America to experience the many rhythms and unique instruments from different regions, while learning about the three cultures that shaped Latin music: Indigenous, European and African. Join us in celebration as we sing, play instruments and dance salsa.

About Cantaré:

Based in the Washington, DC Metropolitan Area, our mission is to offer a high-quality musical performance, that also informs audiences about Latin American geography, history and culture. This engaging educational approach has become very popular in schools, libraries, museums, government agencies and a variety of other public and private venues.

Cantaré is lead by vocalist Cecilia Esquivel and guitarist Dani Cortaza, both from Argentina. Vocals are accompanied by several live string and percussion instruments from Latin America plus bass, percussion and keyboard backing tracks.

A larger ensemble is available upon request. Additional members of Cantaré come from a core group of accomplished Latin musicians residing in the Washington Area, such as Martín Zúñiga, Bruno Lucini, Samuel Munguía, Leonardo Lucini, Gary Sosías, Julio Cuellar, Andrés Mallea, and Anamer Castrello, among others.

Cantaré has released 4 recordings: three CDs for children – Baila para Gozar (2002), Al Agua Pato (2005) and Mucha Música (2014), and one CD for adult audiences Evaluna by Cantaré and Friends (2005). In addition, in 2006 Cantaré recorded the companion CD for the award-winning book Arrorró mi Niño: Latino Lullabies and Gentle Games by renowned children's author and illustrator Lulu Delacre.
