Pacha’s Pajamas: A Story Written by Nature Announces Live Performance Halloween Weekend
Los Angeles, CA (October 20, 2011) — Pacha’s Pajamas: A Story Written by Nature, a hip-hop musical story about a little girl named Pacha who saves the environment with the help of the world’s plants and animals, will take to the stage Saturday, October 29 at 1:00 pm at Los Angeles Green Festival’s Halloween weekend celebration. The live storytelling and musical youth workshop and performance led by Pacha’s Pajamas creators BALANCE Edutainment and an up-and-coming local youth star, takes place in Green Festival’s Green Kids’ Zone at the Los Angeles Convention Center, South Hall G. All children are invited to wear their Halloween costumes and dance along with the Pacha’s Pajamas costumed performers.
Pacha’s Pajamas: A Story Written by Nature is both a children’s book (www.amazon.com and www.pachaspajamas.com) and an upcoming hip-hop musical album, designed to bring music and storytelling together to share important messages about the environment and inspire positive action. The new album features well-known, soon-to-be-announced musical artists and talented youth.
“We believe that catalyzing change can happen in a fun way through socially-conscious music, stories about interdependence and by amplifying the voices of children,” said Aaron Ableman, musician, educator and co-founder of BALANCE Edutainment, the creator of Pacha’s Pajamas.
“Nature’s Rights is an issue that Pacha’s Pajamas aims to popularize through a message of unity across species, honoring the planet upon which humanity depends. We are thrilled to share Pacha’s story with the Green Festival and all the youth movements around the world!”
The Green Festival Green Kids’ Zone includes crafts, Halloween adventures, stories, music and much more throughout the weekend. Green Festival is an eco-friendly marketplace with over 300 exhibitors, live music and spoken word, yoga and movement classes and cutting edge film screenings. Ten stages and pavilions host more than 125 enthusiastic speakers and teachers offering in-depth presentations and short talks on the issues and practices for adults and children of all ages.
In addition to the Green Festival performance, the BALANCE Edutainment team will be making live appearances to perform the story and songs from the Pacha’s Pajamas ebook and album throughout the United States this fall and through 2012.
