A Musical Treat for the Whole Family

Accompanied by her 12-string guitar, a multitude of colorful rhythm instruments and her puppet, Petey, this 45-minute musical adventure invites children to become music-makers and detectives.

Children will revel in the thrill of keeping the beat on dozens of rhythm instruments from countries around the world.
