In “Ding-Dong: Quien Es?” Playing & Learning Latin Rhythms, Maura Mendoza adapts her world music repertoire to introduce children to Latin American rhythms in a fun, cheerful and interactive style. She will perform some Latin American children’s classics and show them how to keep the beat with an egg shaker, tambourine and maracas.
Mendoza started her musical training when she was 14 years old in El Salvador and later in Panama. She attended college in Havana, Cuba, and Mexico City. Her background includes musical theater, acting and dance. After moving to the US and launching her career as a solo singer, Mendoza has played many local venues, exploring rock, jazz, acoustic and pop music. She performs regularly in the Boston area, blending her Latin roots with local jazz musicians.
