Son Jarocho International Exchange Project

August 31, 2013 @ 2:00 pm - 6:00 pm


In August, portoluz is presenting one of the principal artists central to the revival of son jarocho –whose family ties to the genre go back generations.
In a special concert that marks the opening of the new Ruiz Belvis Center, Afrojarochos will be joined by members of the world renown Muntu Dance Theater Ensemble and the community based Puerto Rican ensemble, Buya. This concert will demonstrate the popular interpretation of African and mestizo culture in the context of maintaining traditions in “the new world” and in extraordinary circumstances- as the practice of maintaining ones “roots” has been routinely discouraged and even outlawed throughout centuries.
