Come discover amazing and wonderful world music traditions in DARIA’s live interactive music performance at the Michener. Visitors will get a chance to make their own version of an instrument from Ancient Egypt, and participate in a performance with Daria.
World Music children’s performer DARIA (Daria Marmaluk-Hajioannou) has spent almost three decades performing in the USA and around the world, creating community-building music. Along with numerous national awards for her culturally diverse music, Daria is the author of the MLK Day “I Have A Dream” song as well as the Earth Day Anthem used around the world: ”We’ve Got The Whole World In our Hands”. She’s also the author of several other new classics for kids including “Beautiful Rainbow World”, a World Oceans Day Song and a song about tolerance featuring the Muslim Greeting.
