Un Taller San Basilio de Palenque: A Palenquero Workshop by FolkCOLOMBIA Music and Dance

Un Taller San Basilio de Palenque is a workshop/presentation of music and dance from Colombia's Palenquero region - a unique cultural area established in the 17th century by runaway African slaves who established fortress-villages where they could create their own society using Palenquero, a creole language combining Spanish and African languages. This event will feature percussionist Moris Cañate, and is part of FolkCOLOMBIA's Tertulia-Taller Series, monthly events presented throughout New York City that celebrate the rich music and dance traditions of Colombia.
