razz2018-250-donkey-treeThe Tree and the Donkey Who Loved to Sing tells the tale of how traditional Mexican dance music (son) was found. In the story, an old man befriends the burro (donkey) and the tree. They teach him how to make instruments and music out of wood. You will also meet a few others such as the vulture (abuelito), the owl (búho) and the iguana. The music entices the entire pueblo (town or village) to come together in dance in the spirit of fandango, or community. Cascada de Flores offers an afternoon of song, zapateado (foot stomping) and nostalgia, spiced with a bit of creative Mexican humor.
