Celebrate the Full Moon with a drum circle in Flushing Town Hall’s garden with master drummers from Perú. Begin with a workshop led by percussionist Hector Morales who will demonstrate various Afro-Peruvian rhythms on cajon (box drum), cajita and quijade, then jam with the entire group under the full moon. All are welcome from beginner to professional, just bring your enthusiasm!
“The Afro-Peruvian Ensemble” makes every performance an unforgettable live experience. It celebrates a unique heritage and gets everyone up on their feet and in love with this music! The ensemble’s repertoire includes uplifting festejos and zamacuecas, dazzling Peruvian waltzes and sensual landos, as well as the“contrapunto de cajones” (box drums solos) and “contrapunto de Zapateo” (tap dancing competition), classics of the Afro-Peruvian folklore rarely seen in the US.
