Around the World in Music

Travel the globe in song, dance and story! Begin with “Jambo”, a song which teaches the audience to say “Hello” in Swahili, French, Spanish, Indian, Hawaiian, and a dozen other languages! Travel to the “Bahamas In Your Pajamas”! Make tortillas in Mexico with “Senorita Rita”. Test your memory and dancing ability in the traditional Irish “Rattlin’ Bog”. Sing about “Two Funny Tigers” in Chinese. Laugh at the clever and courageous rabbit with no common sense in the African folktale “How Zomo Earned His Wisdom”. This program features many instruments, many languages, and one theme: we are all a family “Under One Sky!”
Adaptable to fit audiences ages 3 – 10

“I highly recommend Philip Alexander as a Musician, Educator, and Entertainer. As part of our International Week, we invited Philip to perform for our preschool, kindergarteners, and one of our special needs classes. We all loved it! He kept the children (and teachers) ACTIVELY ENGAGED for a FULL hour! The time flew! His show had lots of variety: songs from China, France, Mexico and Australia, among others; a balance of message songs like “Under One Sky” and active dance songs like “Senorita Rita” and the “Kangaroo Hop” freeze dance. The narrative folktale – “How Zomo The Rabbit Got Wisdom” – really captured the children’s attention! As one of the children was dancing happily to the music, she turned to me and said, “This is the best day of my life!”
