Insectos y Bicharracos: Presented in Spanish As Part of The ZunZún Children's Fest 2023
September 28, 2023
The City of Aventura and FUNDarte present the children’s musical Insectos y Bicharracos by Singer-Songwriter Rita Rosa Ruesga on Friday, October 13th at 7:00 p.m. Performed in Spanish, this Musical is inspired by the beloved album of the same name, which Ruesga produced. Accompanied by her band of local musicians, she weaves a story full of Caribbean rhythms and colorful bicharracos, or creepy crawly insects.
The story follows Rosa, who has baked a delicious tartlet to celebrate cleaning the patio with her friends. Musicians and insects have been invited to the party, but… the tart has disappeared. The investigation to find it features songs that provide clues to finding the culprit.
Reaching thousands of children around the world, Ruesga is a Four-Time Grammy® Award Nominee for her Afro-Caribbean and Latin American Musical projects for young people from Cuba, Mexico, Bolivia, Puerto Rico, Germany, Sweden, Panama and the U.S. Internationally recognized for the production of several recordings of children's music, she has worked with Renowned Artists such as: Celia Cruz and Ricky Martin, among others. Ruesga is the author of three children’s books published by Scholastic Books. She graduated in Choral Direction from the National School of Art in Havana.
The Production features Costume and Set Design by Celia Ledón, Artistic Direction by Eddy Díaz Souza and General Production by FUNDarte.
