He also combines different ancient and unique instruments from Latin America, such as string instruments, wind instruments and percussion instruments, creating a unique and magical musical sounds.
This is an interactive program, where Calderon talks about the history of the music, the influence from other cultures in the American continent, a as well as the type of material the instruments are made out of. Calderon will play every single instrument to show participants the different sound and pitch the instruments produce.
