Description: Michael Heralda has presented "Aztec Stories" this culturally educational, musical, and interactive program, to students and interested listeners of all ages throughout the U.S.

The stories, ballads, and narratives presented in this program are all true and based on documented accounts of what is termed the oral tradition - stories handed down through families, generation after generation.

Many handmade indigenous styled instruments are used and shared throughout the presentations - clay flutes, Huehuetl and Teponaztli drums, gourd water drums, shakers, rasps, conch shell trumpets, and many other unique instruments all made from readily available materials giving the listener the understanding that musical instruments can be made from natural elements that surround you.

"Aztec Stories" is an intriguing and thought provoking way to learn about the culture of ancient Mexico and the indigenous worldview of the Mexika (me-shee-ka/Aztecs). For some it may be a way to reconnect to a wonderfully rich legacy that unfortunately lies dormant within them, buried for many, many years and generations. For others it may awaken a new understanding of a culture that was revealed only through the eyes of the Europeans where the beauty, art, and high levels of sophisticated philosophical understanding were ignored or suppressed.

Michael continually develops new programs and evolves existing "Aztec Stories" presentations. Listed below are some of the themes to choose from:

Aztec Stories musical/Interactive presentations – this is one of the most popular programs for libraries and schools K-12.
