Folklore Urbano brings the joyful, musical traditions of Colombia to 92Y.
Folklore Urbano’s Cumbia for Kids takes its audiences on a journey through a diverse country whose rhythms range from the soulful African “currulao” found in the jungles of the Pacific coast, to the frenetic “joropo” from the Eastern Plains region bordering Venezuela, to the charming “bambuco fiestero” found in the region where coffee grows high up in the Andes mountains. The group’s high-energy show gets audiences clapping, singing along and stomping their feet from start to finish, while celebrating cultural diversity. Cumbia for Kids shares the joyful traditions of Colombia, presented with the impeccable artistry of a world-renowned group of NYC artists, including members of Pablo Mayor’s renowned Folklore Urbano Orchestra and Daniel Fetecua’s Pajarillo Pinta’o Dance Company.
