Thanks to the Banda Sinaloense Music Workshop, offered by the Instituto Municipal de Cultura, Turismo y Arte de Mazatlán, dozens of young people from the rural area will have the opportunity to learn to play one or more musical instruments in their community, thus having a cultural alternative.
The community of San Marcos, belonging to the La Noria receivership, was chosen to start this important project of the paramunicipal that José Ángel Tostado Quevedo directs, which fulfills the mandate of the Mayor of Mazatlán, Qiuimicol Luis Guillermo Benitez Torres, to bring culture to all corners of the entity.
Santiago Rosas, instructor of the workshop, indicated that this project was born to bring musical education of the Sinaloan folklore to the surrounding communities, benefiting children and youth who cannot attend schools in the Port.
The ambitious plan will house the El Recodo and El Roble syndicates, and in the following weeks classes will begin in El Quelite and Puerta de Canoas, where approximately 30 students will be active per school.
Rosas invited those who are interested to join, the requirements are to be over eight years old, know how to add, and have the desire to learn music.
A month ago, music education began in San Marcos, during which time the young people have evolved according to plan.
Santiago Hernández, a percussion student, said he was excited about what he had learned and that the classes are fun, reason enough for more children and young people from the surrounding communities to join the project.
This workshop seeks to rescue traditional Sinaloan music in addition to involving young people in the learning and practice of this art. It should be noted that some established musical groups will join this project by sharing experiences with the students through different talks, in addition to granting different supports such as the donation of instruments
