Liah Alonso of Liah Alonso Music makes her hooping.org debut during a hula hoop lesson she took in San Miguel, Mexico – with hooping instructors Mini-Punk and Klaudia Oliver. Liah visits with some very photogenic donkeys, learns to hoop and plays a hooping inspired song on her charango that she makes up lyrics for on the spot. This video contains clips from a series called “Around the World in 80 Songs” which is a project Liah is currently working on, having dedicated her time to traveling to 80 different cities where she has given herself 10 days to put a band together and create a song, showing the world “that there’s only one language..and that’s music.” Liah is from New York City, New York, USA.
Ted Garber has a song called “Hula Hoop Girl” which we’ve been meaning to share with you, and what better way to do so than with a live performance. The video was filmed at a private party in Sterling, Virginia, featuring South American hula hoop girl Leila Natour. From his “Live at Strathmore” album which won the Washington Area Music Association’s Pop Rock Album of the Year, he lives in Washington DC. It’s available on iTunes.
