TWO......... ART SHOWS........ both free, on Sunday July 11..........

Not so long ago, I had made a new friend by the name of Aquino Fermin, via the notorious facebook. And through him he was able to link a special program that features the Dominican's and their heritage and culture in a one day special event in the Heights. Little that i know, these events n the Heights, showcase many little programs and presentations, where the focus s on the experience and the learning of its culture.

Very much honorer to REALLY WORK in my community, with my people as to what I do, and teach at the same time the little one, if any chance given! Our future lays in the many ways we can provide a visual conversation for the little ones to see. Its our duty and our responsibility

Quisqueya en el Hudson is an annual cultural and educational festival that celebrates the musical traditions from the Dominican Republic, Haiti and neighboring islands. Quisqueya en el Hudson stimulates the youth to learn about their culture and in turn serves as an agent of change for the Dominican community to embrace their roots.

Quisqueya en el Hudson, which was launched in 1996, is the first large-scale event to feature traditional Dominican music and dance in the metropolitan region and is an outgrowth of a four-year research and technical assistance project initiated by the Center for Traditional Music and Dance.

Quisqueya en el Hudson showcases over 50 premier, community-based artists and serves as a catalyst for unifying diverse groups within the Dominican community for a single purpose – to strengthen and maintain Dominican cultural identity. It features outstanding Dominican artists performing a wide range of music and dance traditions, including the Afro-Dominican folk style drumming and song-based palos, and gaga. The festival showcases a wide array of dance performances, adapted from African and European forms, which are extremely popular in Dominican folklore.

You can more then willing to walk with me over to Camaradas, for a much needed R&R visual with the much grown artist, and they paint the night with music! are you with me?
