A festive dance at Museo Nacional will mark the end of the museum’s seasonal exhibit called “A Tres Bandas: Mestizaje, sincretismo, e hibridación en el espacio sonoro iberoamericano.”
Featuring the sounds and choreography of historic Latin American shows, the series of dances called “Bailando a Tres Bandas” is meant to compliment the exhibit’s visual aspects with this historic style of music. Both the exhibit and the dance cover Latin American music from the 17th to 20th centuries.
The event is free for citizens and begins this Sunday at 9 a.m. in the museum’s central patio and continues until 1 p.m. Sunday also is the last day museum goers can see the “A Tres Bandas” exhibition. This schedule begins with a swing workshop, then includes a performance from the national dance company, and then from the Cradle of Swing organization. A concert from the concert band of San José will round out the event at 11:30 a.m.
Food and drink vendors from Escazú will also be on hand.
