Rhythm of the Latin Quarter
May 9, 2015 at 12:00 pm–4:00 pm
Audiences won’t need to travel to the Caribbean to experience the beauty and richness of Afro-Latin music. Come to Boston’s Latin Quarter, accessible by T, and be moved by the rhythm of Afro-Latin Percussion. For ArtWeek, bring your own drum or use one of ours and join in on a drum circle led by professional percussionists. Enjoy performances by professional and youth percussionists, including Afro Latin band Afrika Gente and Hyde Square Task Force’s own ¡Dale! youth percussion ensemble. In addition, children and adults of all ages are welcome to participate in a drum making workshop led by Boston Makers, and try out instruments at our Instrument Petting Zoo that make Afro Latin music so vibrant! Make a day of it and stick around to visit the businesses of the Latin Quarter, including some of the best Latino restaurants in the city! Event is family friendly and free to public.
