Ricardo Frota brings an exciting and dramatic performance that inspires children and parents to absorb the rhythms, sounds, and music from around the world.  Ricardo entertains and educates while playing multi-cultural songs from indigenous peoples from many cultures.  He incorporates African, South American, Native American, and Brazilian music into an interactive and exciting experience for people of all ages.  His performance uses traditional rhythm instruments, and instruments made of recycled materials and objects found in nature.
