Barbados’ Culture at the Hollywood Bowl
Location : United States
Posted : Wed 4 July 2012 : 11:36:56 PM

This July, the famous Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles will provide and introduction to thousands of children and their families, to Barbados. They will learn about George Washington House, the sno cone man, and join the Green Camouflage peace march as they hear all about growing up in Barbados. This is part of Summer Sounds, an annual summer concert series geared towards young audiences and families.

The program is run by David Kirton, during whose twice daily performances a cast of characters will meet the Barbadian musician/songwriter and accompany him and his band on a visit to Barbados. Whilst there, they will learn about America’s first President George Washington’s visit to Barbados and hear about his restored home on the historic Garrison Savannah. No visit to Barbados for children would be complete without a sno cone, imagining fish that fly, and learning to swim. During the grand finale, the children form a conga line, and hold peace march to Kirton’s hit song, Green Camouflage. The plot of the 40 minute performance conveys the peaceful culture of Barbadian life, Kirton’s Rastafarian lifestyle, the natural beauty of the island and the lyrical imagery of his music.

Summer Sounds creates a Sesame Street type of set, featuring props, actors and scenes to accompany the tropical story line. Prior to each performance, the children will be given cut outs of Barbadian symbols, such as the flying fish, sno cone and donkey cart, to colour and take home as souvenirs of their musical journey to Barbados.

The series is hosted and funded by The Los Angeles Philharmonic, Walt Disney Concert Hall and The Hollywood Bowl. David Kirton will be performing from July 9th to 20th. For more information, go to www.hollywoodbowl.com/education/summersounds/index.cfm
