The songs “Duerme negrito”, “Arrurú”, “Pajarito que cantas”, “Se va la lancha“, “Cucú, le llamó”, “Mira niñita” and the poem “El establo” were illustrated by Paloma Valdivia and performed by different musicians and actors from Chile and Argentina, among them María Rosario Cofré or “Charo” Cofré, Álvaro Díaz, Delfina Guzmán, Mario Mutis, Judith Akoschky and Atahualpa Yupanqui.
The exhibition, which counted with the collaboration of the Laboratory of Models and Prototypes of the Faculty of Architecture, Design and Urban Studies of Universidad Católica de Chile, is made up of six box dioramas or little theaters and an immersive work.
The dioramas will include an audio system that will play the songs and includes an animated projection of one of the illustrations on one of the walls of the room.
It also stands out that three of the songs played in the exhibit: “Se va la lancha”, “Cucú, le llamó” and “Mira niñita” were chosen from a list of children’s songs that resulted from a participatory call made by the CCLM with its community of followers through its social networks.
