The melody and lyrics of our celebrations, traditions, and social events evoke toe-tapping memories and a smile of recognition that invite the whole group to join in.

The SPICE of life is Spiritual, Physical, Intellectual, Cultural and Emotional, and music enhances every aspect of that life. Casa Muriel will provide engaged elders with an environment of creativity by organizing in-house musical events and group trips to public concerts.

Casa Muriel residents will be exploring Guatemalan folkloric and trova songs, search engine efficiency, and mind-expanding musical options, together with curious young adults who crave the perspective of their experience. For past generations of retirement homes, bingo, golf and shuffleboard were the standard, but it’s a whole new multi-cultural dance-inspired world out there now.

Successful Inter-Generational Homes

In Holland, university students live in retirement homes in exchange for sharing common interests with the residents. Older folks are integral contributors to society as instructors and advisors. We appreciate their input because inter-generational support benefits everyone involved.

Sometimes young musicians are the contributors as "artists in residence". Energetic and open-minded music students live at the senior home for no charge in exchange for performing recitals and concerts. We want to introduce this successful European model to our Casa in Antigua, Guatemala.

Hear "Cruel Twist"

Since the 1960's, record companies have hired studio sessions musicians in Los Angeles because they are the best in the business. You admired their precision riffs behind the most iconic performers of the 20th century. Those same rock-solid musicians are blowing minds again in the 21st century as The Immediate Family with skills and style unmatched by younger artists.
