Roots & Rhythms

Clip | 3m 33s

Teaching students to embrace their own cultures, Roots & Rhythms is an after-school drumming program founded in 2008 by Sevylla del Mazo. With drums created from buckets, the bilingual students of Roots & Rhythms collaborate, create and have some fun while learning the basics of percussion. Thanks to the City of Austin’s Economic Growth & Redevelopment Services Office/Cultural Arts Division.
