VC Artist Aizuri Quartet's "Aizuri Kids" — Episode 2
Check out this this interactive web series for children uses the string quartet as a catalyst for creative learning
In this second episode, VC Artist Aizuri Quartet explores the music of Hawa Kassé Mady Diabaté, whose joyful handclapping songs were inspired by her childhood in Mali. These songs are often about being together with your family and your community, and she wrote Wawani inspired by that tradition.
"We love it because we get to make music in three different ways — by playing with our bows, plucking our strings, and clapping. Come join the circle with the quartet and let the music make you smile!"
