This children’s program repeats at 12:15–12:45pm.

Using finger snaps, tight slaps, chest thumps, foot drags, hand rubs and percussive dance steps, Crosspulse performances are designed to enchant children with an international array of rhythms, instruments and obscure musical practices. With five extraordinary artists versed in body percussion and a diverse array of traditions, the ensemble features Keith Terry (jazz, body music), Evie Ladin (Appalachian), Omar Ledezma (Afro-Venezuelan), Bryan Dyer (beatbox) and Amber Hines (African-American spiritual). Creating a joyful noise that is sure to entrance adults as well as kids, Crosspulse is a Bay Area treasure known for bringing body music into classrooms, theaters and nightclubs around the world.
