An evening of folkloric song and dance along the river!
The Lonely Coast (Valerie Holt & Anne Mathews) perform close-harmony duets of folk and traditional music from Europe and the Americas. With guest fiddler Annie Ford, they performed a set for Duwamish Revealed that included original compositions about the Duwamish, and other traditional and re-imagined songs about rivers.
Ballet Folklorico Angeles de Mexico shares Mexican culture in a welcoming environment where people from 5 to 105 can have fun and experience traditions from all over Mexico. Founder and director Aurelia Ramos has over 30 years of folkloric dancing experience. As part of Duwamish Revealed, she and her dance partner Jose Antonio Malagon Garcia “Pepe” held a 12-week series of free folkloric dance workshops. Workshop attendees performed at the Water Festival. Their performance was featured in a CityArts magazine photo spread.
