Yes, And: Rhythms of the Americas

Yes, And: Rhythms of the Americas

For this Yes, And special event, LINEAJES artist Antonio M. Gómez will facilitate an exploration of the interconnections between music and dance in the Americas. Enjoy a conversation, demonstrations, and hands-on (feet-on) experiences of drum and dance traditions. Gómez and members of the Meso-American drum and dance company Huehca Omeyocan (which also lent the Mexica huehuetl and teponaztli drums for the exhibition) will explore the unique intersection of Indigenous, African, and European heritages that form the foundation of music and dance traditions across Latin America.

This program will start in the gallery before moving upstairs to the Art Studio for a workshop and demonstration of the themes and art forms on view in the exhibition. Participation is encouraged, and participants of all abilities are invited.
