Espantaxim Project:

Dulce is married and has four children and eight grandchildren. The arrival of her first few grandchildren inspired her to begin working on Children’s Music and Literature. Soon after, she published the book/CD “Espantaxim and the Magic Castle— 14 songs by Dulce Auriemo”. As a committed supporter for the arts and a constant nurturer of music and poetry, through Espantaxim she has been able to enter children’s universe with a new idea, born from an original history: eighteen characters and music that ensemble a rich collection of typical Brazilian rhythms.

Dulce is the author of various books and Cds related to the characters of the Magic Castle. She is the Founder and Director of D. A. Artistic Productions and of the Record Label D.A. Music. With the collaboration of the D.A. team, the development of this current cultural project has been made possible. The Espantaxim project has been adopted by hundreds of schools and charitable institutions. Having a pedagogical purpose and function (for pre-school audiences) this project leads children to the love of music and literature. As well, through the characters, stories, and songs, the importance of environmental conservation and of the cultivation of world peace is emphasized. The Espantaxim Project was first published in September, 2002 and it has already reached millions of people of all ages, through performances in theaters, clubs, schools, bookstores, social activism, and charitable institutions.
