Houston Arts Alliance’s Folklife + Traditional Arts Program presents Sharing the
Immigrant Advantage: The Language of Lullabies
Houston Arts Alliance's Folklife + Traditional Arts Program continues Remembered, Regained: Immigrant Arts of Houston, a program that showcases the rich artistic and cultural traditions that reside in the city's immigrant communities, through Sharing the Immigrant Advantage: Lectures and Workshops. This series of lectures and workshops looks at the immigrant experience in Houston through three very different lenses.
This workshop explores the almost universal tradition of songs sung to soothe and comfort children at bedtime and will feature demonstrations and translations in Russian and Yiddish by Vadim Tunitsky, Cantonese songs by Dennis Kwok and Congolese traditions by Bénédicte Ngumbu.
