EastSide Arts Alliance * NAKA * Cunamacué present:

Huarango & Cunamacué

Contemporary Afro-Peruvian Music & Dance

JUNE  FRI/7 & SAT/8 @8 pm

The month of June is Afro-Peruvian culture month in Peru. For the first time the festivities are celebrated here in the Bay Area with Oakland's first Afro-Peruvian festival, Ondú. The festival kicks off with a performance on June 7 & 8 at EastSide Cultural Center by two local companies that reinterpret Afro-Peruvian folklore, Huarango and Cunamacué. Both groups are rooted in Afro-Peruvian culture and develop a contemporary approach of its music and dance.

Huarango is a new musical project born in Oakland, California that recreates traditional Afro-Peruvian music with contemporary sounds influenced by jazz and classical music.

Cunamacué based in Oakland, California is a contemporary Afro-Peruvian dance company that uses Afro-Peruvian movement vocabulary as well as movements inspired by modern dance and dances of the African Diaspora to promote the continuity of Afro-Peruvian culture, representing it not as a point in time, but as a living, vibrant and evolving form whose music and dance can be used as a means of contemporary expression.
