EMBARK ON A Our first stop...

Guatemala

With a new music room, increased number of youth, and full program expansion, LEAF International Guatemala is ready to share their sacred strings music with the world! During their 5-day residency and cultural exchange, LEAF International Guatemala will share the history of Guatemalan music, the importance of the Marimba – Guatemala’s national instrument & the influence Mayan culture plays in their country.

Next stop...

LEAF International Rwanda

LEAF International Rwanda, featuring Culture Keeper David Kwizera, will introduce young students to the rich, diverse music & dance traditions of Eastern Africa. Students will learn basic Rwandan dance, a tradition deeply embedded in the cultural interplay between African continuity, rhythm, and acts of positive resistance that challenged oppression. Through this cultural exchange, students will be invited to cultivate crosscultural understanding and a sense of global citizenship. Arriving to our final destination... and

Introducing LEAF International Ivory Coast

The Dembele family has been passing on their music culture for nearly 700 years. Because of the great amount of respect LEAF has for African arts & heritages, LEAF partners with culture keepers Adama & Dramane Dembele to support the continuation of West African Drum and Dance traditions in Ivory Coast. Look for LEAF International Ivory Coast across all stages and especially at the Global Outpost.

Have you lost someone close to your heart & soul? I have too. LEAF is one of those beautiful places where I feel them close to me. Pick up your luminary at the Boathouse, and decorate it or write a poem. On Friday 7:30pm, we will meet at the Boathouse to release our luminaries in honor of Loved Ones passed, and watch them illumine the healing waters of Lake Eden. ~Lindsay M.
