World Music Tour

International Appreciation | Understanding Diversity | Cultural Celebrations

The World Music Tour is one of Guy’s most popular school enrichment assemblies, and it also serves as a fantastic family program!  This show is a cultural celebration that features authentic instruments and songs from Africa, India, Europe, and America’s past and present.  This is the perfect daytime assembly to celebrate cultural diversity as it will include every student.  All ages are engaged with the incredible instruments, the authentic music and the interactive, light-hearted professional delivery.  This show will absolutely delight your audience with a celebration of music and culture… a classic Guy Louis performance!

Check out the instruments used in this show:

 

Begin with the powerful Native American Drum and shaker players, a song of thanksgiving from the Lakota tribe, and interactive dancing for students. Consider the importance of Native American themes for our world today, such as caring for our mother earth.  On to Renaissance Europe with the 15-string Lute, which was the most popular instrument at the time of Christopher Columbus in Europe.  The delicate harmonics of the European Lute contrasts significantly with the earthy Native Music and dancing.  It is said that Christopher Columbus’ son was a fine lute player.

On to Africa, where we learn that music is for everyone to share!  With approximately 25 African instruments that students will play, it becomes a community celebration with a call-and-response singing, dancers, and the instruments in an African celebration.  Students will also learn the catchy “Je Je Kule”, a call-and-response song with movements that they will love.

The show could really end after the joyful African outburst, yet we move on to Exotic India.  The incredible 20-string sitar which is an amazing sounding instrument with an 0ut-of-this-world design. The 4-string Tamboura is a closely related instrument from India, and it provides the background for classical Indian music.  Finally the Tabla drums, which comes in a set of two separate drums, show a wide range of possible sounds and is a very important part of Indian Music.

The final instrument is one that was invented in America.  Though the guitar was not invented in America, the Electric Guitar was invented right here in America.  Guy will demonstrate the development of American music from blues to rock and roll, and end the show with a jubilant classic such as “Johnny B. Goode” by the great Chuck Berry, or maybe a song from Elvis.

Your students, teachers and families will all enjoy every minute of this program.  In addition to playing the amazing instruments, Guy’s well-developed performance style will engage students of every age.  Teachers will appreciate the deep integration between the pertinent cultural information, the music, the celebration and appreciation of all cultures.

If you’ve never had Guy perform for your community, this is a great show to start with… The World Music Tour!
