Along with providing exhilarating entertainment, Quijeremá’s members play over thirty instruments, have performed worldwide and appeared on regional, national and international radio and television. Since the founding of the group, the ensemble has offered three levels of workshops tailored to the needs of particular demographics. For young audiences, the band has conducted hands-on demonstrations, taking an interactive approach to helping kids play Latin American rhythms and learn cultural histories through songs, stories and dance. For older audiences, Quijeremá focuses their discussion on the rich historical and cultural aspects of their music, reinforcing these points with live musical examples. And, for professional musicians, through performance and dialogue, the band shares their insight into the music business and their own creative process as well as details of the technical aspects of producing their art.
Quijeremá's members and the ensemble itself have been featured presenters at such colleges as UC Berkeley, Stanford, Mills College and Oberlin, and are grant recipients from the National Endowment of the Arts, the Djerassi Foundation and the San Francisco Symphony.
