Bronx Rising! Parranda con Paranda: French Connection

December 15 @ 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

The Parranda con Paranda is our annual Puerto Rican & Garifuna Holiday Celebration. 

This year we look at European, specifically French-influenced genres, in the Caribbean, such as “la danza” from Puerto Rico and the “quadrille” as practiced among Garifuna communities. In the Garifuna community in Belize it is called the “Grand Ball,” where women and men dress up in European attire and come out to dance to the accompaniment of music. Our program begins with dance performances followed by traditional drum-based music from both communities.

With Danza Fiesta. Musicians include Nelson Matthew GonzalezJames LovellBobby SanabriaNelson SedaBryan Vargas, Andy Ordonez, and Jorge Vazquez. Garifuna quadrille choreography by Mariano Martinez.

Admission: $7 | $5 for students and seniors | FREE for kids 12 – under + IG residents.

We are located steps from the 2/5 train at Freeman Street. Parking accessible.
