This is a lively song, with lots of scope for fun performance ideas. With easy English and Spanish words, elements of dance, 'attitude acting' and percussion, it is a useful piece to get together quickly for school performances and events. It works well with piano, guitar, or a full band with brass and samba drums. It has been used extensively in schools in the north. North Lakes School, Penrith, start by leaning on each other, arms folded, tapping their feet and looking bored, then spring into action with "This!'. Actions for walking, talking and singing can be individualised. In the Canta! section, echoing the call with claps works well. For a riotous ending, gradually speed up the A section and end with a YEAH!

Which method of viewing music should I use?

Score Exchange has two methods to display previews of music: seView which uses regular html and javascipt and the Scorch plug-in from Avid which needs to be downloaded and installed onto your computer. Both have advantages and disadvantages:

seView

seView, is the most compatible option. You should be able to view music on all modern web browsers including most mobile devices. Even if your device does not support javascript you should still be able to preview at least page one of the music.

You do not need to install any additional software to use seView.

Scorch

Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. As modern web browsers are updated, Scorch is no longer compatible with many browsers. Scorch has never been compatible with mobile devices and some web browsers on Mac computers.

If your web browser does not install Scorch automatically, you can click here to download and install scorch manually.
