Links are only up for the week, so tune in each week and ENJOY!!! 

TEACHING ARTIST:  Claudia Lyra

ART FORM DESCRIPTION: Music, Capoeira and Storytelling

Claudia Lyra is a Brazilian Teaching Artist and Portuguese Language Teacher. She will be sharing traditional arts from her home country of Brazil, including body music, rhythms and songs that workers developed in the coffee and sugar-cane fields and while building cob houses made of clay, soil, sand, and straw. She loves the power of oral tradition, music and movement to enhance self-awareness. Through art she finds it easier to answer every day thoughts including "Who am I?" "How does my body feel today and how can I help it feel better?" "Are my words translating my thoughts?"  "Is my communication efficient?". In her video she will teach rhythms from Brazil and their history, how and why they were created, and how they have become popular. She will also share videos of the "Masters" of these Brazilian arts sharing their knowledge with the younger generation, hoping to inspire her audience to get closer to their personal history and culture's values.
