Afro-Peruvian Music, Dance and Cajon Workshop

February 25, 2012 @ 3:00 pm - 12:00 am

Join Ruben Pachas for a hands-on workshop on the diversity of Afro-Peruvian folk dance. He will focus on the Festejo, a music and dance form developed in the plantation fields during the 18th century. The word Festejo, comes from the Spanish word festejar (to celebrate) . True to its name, the music and dance of the Afro-Peruvian genre is joyous and vibrant but its traditional lyrics usually narrate the hardships of enslaved life. Participation will be encouraged. The class will last about one hour and you will learn other Afro-Peruvian dances such as Zamacueca, Lando, Marinera & Vals.

All levels welcome
(Beginners always welcome/Advanced students learn new techniques and refresh your Cajon skills)
