Orquestra de Afectos is a project aimed at improving affective communication in preschools through music, in particular using voice, to mitigate conflicting relationships that often bring the problems of the surrounding neighbourhoods into the schools.

The project focuses on holding music sessions, centred around the vocal repertoire, to develop the affective ties between children and adults, and encourage socialisation, communication and soft skills development.
