During our second Circle gathering the students created music. The instructions included creating rhythm with hands and body and incorporating vocals w/o sound. Three groups, One community. As a community the students had to bring their individual music or identity into the community while each group simultaneously played their own music. The students came up with very creative songs/rhythms. We processed how one develops a cultural identity and how our cultural identity dances and at time clashes with other cultural identities. Can there be a Global Identity made of several colorful identities co-existing in peace? What happens when we rigidly adhere to our cultural identity and close ourselves off to cultures that are different or appear to contradict our own cultural identity? These and many more questions we will try to hold and play with during the school year in Circle. Gracias!
