After receiving a generous grant from the Benton County Cultural Coalition, the literacy center created a CD project with songs in different native languages performed by community members. Most of the singers had never recorded before.
The project culminated in the recording of more than 20 community members singing 22 traditional and original songs in 10 different languages including: Sanskrit and Hindi from India; Sasak from Indonesia; French; Vietnamese; Tagalog from the Philippines; English; Mongolian; Taiwanese; Dari from Afghanistan; and Spanish from Mexico.
The Benton Center Acoustic Showcase is free and open to the public. For more information, contact the LBCC Benton Center at 541-757-8944.
