The Fall Downtown Lunchtime Recital Series will begin with a Latin beat. Come hear the folkloric group Raices Caribenas on September 26th at 12:15 p.m.
This folkloric music and dance ensemble specializes in the rhythms and dances of both Cuba and Puerto Rico. The group interprets the three forms of Cuban rumba, the many beats and strains of the Santeria bata drum liturgy, and the Puerto Rican rhythms known as bomba and plena. Members of the group come from diverse music and cultural backgrounds. Principals are Nicole Wines, William Torres, Dean Warren Schomburg, Manuel Bedoya, and Francisco Gomez.
A free lunch will follow the free recitals. Invite friends to join you for these wonderful occasions.
