Kibungo, The Beast of The Brazilian Rainforest with Calle Sur

During this program, participants will learn about Kibungo, a legendary beast from the Brazilian rainforest who is outsmarted by all other animals when he tries to eat them. In a fable-like fashion, this folk tale teaches how the use of one's intelligence can overcome physical limitations. The activity combines simple instrument making, singing, dancing, and acting. This interactive, high-energy, instructive musical theater program is fun and the perfect vehicle for enhancing awareness of some of the causes of rainforest destruction.
