African Roots Latino Soul

“What is the music inside you?”



Karen Zacarias explored this question in her innovative piece African Roots/Latino Soul. 





Students from MacFarland Middle School and Bell Multicultural High School provided original writing on their African, Latino and Caribbean heritage. Karen Zacarias molded their work into African Roots/Latino Soul presented by the Smithsonian Institution’s Discovery Theater in October 2006 and produced again in October 2007 in response to viewer demand.
