Juan de Marcos & the Afro-Cuban All Stars
Juan de Marcos first gained notice in the US as founder of the Buena Vista Social Club. But de Marcos is just as interested in promoting Cuba’s brilliant young musicians as in highlighting Cuba’s senior talent. The Afro-Cuban All Stars not only features a multi-generational cast, the group draws on both classic Cuban styles like son and danzón and contemporary dance rhythms like timba.
Halau o Kekuhi
Harnessing the force of the mighty volcanoes and the serene beauty of the forests that are their neighbors, the members of this acclaimed and highly respected hula troupe sing and dance in honor of Pele, the goddess of fire and the creator of their native islands. The Hawaiian classical dance ensemble specializes in the vigorous and kinetic ‘aiha‘a style of hula and chant, handed down from woman to woman for more than eight generations of the Kanaka’ole family in Hilo, on the Big Island.
