about

Motivated by their passion for the culture, music and language of their homelands Cynthia Landa from Peru and Mariani Rivera from Puerto Rico have formed a duo called Racataplín. They live in Palmerston North and are members of the Latin American Band “Canta Conmigo”. Mariani plays guitar and takes the leading singing role. Cynthia is from Peru, sings backing vocals, and plays Charango as well as several traditional percussion instruments.

In their CD “Fuerza y Movimiento” (Power and Movement) Racataplín presents a selection of traditional childrenʼs songs as well as their own original compositions. Traditional instruments such as charango, bombo, castanets, guiro and acoustic guitar are combined with modern keyboard and bass, provided by guest musician Justin James. The toe-tapping rhythms appeal to children of all ages and reflect the African, Spanish and Indigenous influences on the cultures of Latin America.
This album offers a unique opportunity for children to have fun and experience Spanish language through rhyme, song, and movement. It is also a teaching resource, which provides activities to extend and reinforce Spanish learning. Some of the learning includes greetings, action verbs, names of musical instruments, traditional Latin American games, seasons and months of the year, names of animals and parts of the body. Cynthia and Mariani are experienced entertainers with a gift to motivate and involve their audience.
