The show was presented by Cascada de Flores which translates to Waterfall of Flowers.

Cascada de Flores took the children of Dryden through the world of Mexican folk music, in a show filled with rhyme, fun musical instruments, and sweet characters.

In their bilingual program, ‘The Tree and the Donkey Who Wanted to Sing,’ the audience meets a donkey, an old man, a tree and many other characters and instruments. Children were delight-ed to learn new words, sing along and participate in the musical program.

Cascada de Flores is a professional music ensemble dedicated to the explo-ration, preservation, and dissemination of Mexican and Caribbean folk music. Their educational programming has reached over 50,000 students in schools, libraries, and cultural centers throughout the West.
