Make and decorate your own water bottle shaker while learning about the role of this fundamental percussion instrument in Latin America. From the maracatu rhythms of the Northeastern coast of Brazil to the iconic Cuban rumba, shakers and chekerés add an important element to the layered percussive complexity of these musical styles.

Bring the kids! Materials are provided.
