Festival for the Dead 1: Testimonials for the Ancestors & El Santísimo

Description

For many cultures, death has always been felt with such finality. There are those, however, that have maintained a reverence and veneration for those that came before them. The Raíces Cultural Center's 2011 production Festival for the Dead: Ancestral Musical Traditions in the Diaspora explored cuban and brazilian drum, dance and song as they are used to pay homage and give praise to the ancestors in everlasting celebration!

Experience the traditions honoring and celebrating the ancestors - caboclos, egun, muertos, orishas.

We will be posting sections of the production here on our YouTube channel. These include the video interviews used as multimedia in the production and clips from the performance itself.
