Target audience: teachers


In this workshop for teachers, the materials and methods that originated the creation of the Mininus show are explored. Starting with the presentation of the project of collection and editing of the album Nha Mininu, we approach the African and Guinean culture and geography, showing how the voices of children in Guinea-Bissau were recorded and mixed with the instruments of Guinean musicians in Portugal. Playing some traditional and experimental instruments created especially for the show, rhythmic, sound and musical games with objects are stimulated, learning some songs in the languages of the peoples of Guinea-Bissau. In the end, each participant is given a pedagogical notebook created by the author and illustrator Margarida Botelho, with games and playful proposals about the themes and materials of the show.
