Bronx Rising! In The Spirit of Aña: Adukeiras and Batukadeiras
March 24 @ 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
In honor of Women’s History Month, we celebrate the traditional rhythms and sounds of the Adukeiras and Batukadeiras. The Adufe is the frame drum that is traditionally played by groups of women in the Iberian Peninsula. In this case, in the interior of Portugal. The adufeiras are the symbols of women’s roles as the “messengers” of the ancestors. Batuku is a Cape Verdean rhythm also played by groups of women, which carries the rhythmic subdivisions used by the adufeiras, as well as a call & response typical to African music. Presented by Catarina Dos Santos and Marcy DePina, with Maria Rodrigues and other musical guests.
Yalizsa Bakes! will be in the house to sell her awesome snacks.
Admission fee: $7 | $5 for students and seniors | FREE for IG residents and kids 12 – under.
