“At Kids Rock History we feel obliged to promote musical didactics, knowledge of instruments, teamwork or gender equality, among other aspects”, declares Fernando Santana, head of the project. “The ‘little rockers’ live a sensitive experience that takes them from the birth of rock & roll in the US to the present day with a proposal that leaves no one indifferent. A family adventure through music ”.
In addition, the audience target is universal: grandparents enjoy remembering the birth and subsequent empowerment of rock. And they do it doubly, observing how their grandchildren react to the stimulus they received decades ago. Parents discover common interests to explore with their sons and daughters. And the children find that music is made by people and that they can also make it themselves if they wish.
“That a whole family can enjoy a live concert together, that they get moved by a story full of positive values and that they congratulate us continuously for it, makes me feel very proud of this project. The joy of the spectators, during and after the show, rewards all our work. Enjoying the smile of children is priceless. It thrills ”, describes Fernando Santana.
This initiative was born from the hands of professionals in music, theater and the world of culture and has already triumphed in places and formats as diverse as the Rock & Books Festival; The Paper Club; Carnival of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria; Mojo Music Festival; Zero Festival; Meridiano Shopping Center and the Juan Ramón Jiménez Theater, among others.
“The idea that we put forward is suitable for any type of scenario, exterior or interior. And it is based on three main vertices: Musical education; the broadening of the cultural base in the lower age ranges and the promotion of intergenerational communication in the family environment in which the excellence of art and values is taught, through play and fun, through the gaze of the musician and actor ”, he points out.
One of the protagonists of the musical is Laura, played by actress, singer and songwriter Raquel Amegashie. Her character is a young woman who yearns to compose a song that will bring her fame the shortest way: through a television contest. The host and the musicians warn her that without knowledge it is going to be a very complicated task, so she receives the visit of several “masters” of music who lead her through a magical world until she understands that creation is the goal itself. itself.
The rest of the artistic team is made up of the actresses Raquel Amegashie and Sara Álvarez, while the band brings together talented musicians with a lot of weight in the Canarian scene: Cristina Santana (voice); Juanma Barroso and Sergio Casquero (guitars); Marcial Bonilla (bass) and Alejandro de la Puente (drums).
“At Kids Rock History we do not try to distort or undervalue other musical styles that are currently taking over all the charts on radio, television or the Internet. These days, there is a glut of information that can be overwhelming. Music is just one click away and is practically disposable. Our intention is to give value to the creation of music. That the children know in situ the composition of a band, its instruments and enjoy a live concert, “he says. Kids Rock History
