This Global Village Party will be an event you don’t want to miss! Come experience the cultural diversity that exists around the world! Come learn new traditions and meet new people.
In the month of June, we will pay tribute to the second biggest festivity in South America after Rio’s carnival: The Inti Raymi (Festival of the Sun). This was the biggest religious festivity of the Inca Empire in honor of the god Inti. It is still celebrated annually in the Andes, attracting hundreds of thousands of visitors from all over the world.
Cuatro Suyos Restaurant will provide Peruvian appetizers (http://www.4suyos.com/).
Carmen Edith Freeze, Director of Pachacamak Folk Dance Group, will teach a class of Andean/Ecuadorian Folk Dance followed by Pachacamak dancers performance.
Chicago Urban Fusion band Nu Bambu will play their danceable Rumba-Reggae music. The band members are from France, Venezuela, Jamaica, Puerto Rico, the United States, and Peru. Their music is multilingual, street-smart and cutting-edge lyrics with a twist that fuse together different styles (http://nubambumusic.com/)
Nhucanchi Causay, a Canhari cultural legacy musical group from Ecuador will play a diverse array of cultural musical styles from the Andes.
