Song & Dance Around the Globe with Sagit Zilberman
July 26, 2019 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am
Dance to, sing along with, and experience traditional music from cultures across the world! International jazz multi-instrumentalist Sagit Zilberman will perform an interactive global music program for families and children. This program introduces audience members to instruments such as the didgeridoo, rainstick, tongue drum, Handpan, and saxophone, and, through unique sounds and songs, invites them to celebrate and appreciate our planet’s diverse nature, animals, and cultures. It also empowers the young and young at heart to use their own voices, rhythm, and body as instruments to play and create music with others.
Sagit Zilberman is an internationally-acclaimed musician and a meditation/yoga instructor. Originally from Israel and residing in the U.S. for the past 10 years, she allows her cultural roots to mix with her audience’s favorite songs, expressed upon a myriad of enticing instruments such as the Swiss Hand-Pan (a steel drum which produces magical harmonies), a simple recorder, and her jazzy saxophone. Sagit received her bachelor of music from Berklee College of Music in Boston, and worked as an instructor/facilitator there for 4 years. Employing music and cultural heritage to gain mindfulness and encourage unity, she has performed in over 50 church and community centers in Poland, Germany, and Ukraine, echoing the musical sounds and lyrics of her native Israeli-Jewish traditions.
