Corazón Latino Festival, April 9, 2022, at the Pavilion at Founder's Park
Fandango with Estanzuela, Thursday, March 10, 2022, Colombian Coffee Exchange, 1701 West Market Street Johnson City TN [Event by ETSU Appalachian Studies and Colombian Coffee Exchange] From Facebook: Join us for a Fandango in Johnson City! The fandango is a key part of culture in the Atlantic coastal region of Veracruz, Mexico. For people who live in our part of Tennessee, this communal celebration might look familiar. Son Jarocho music involves picking and singing, the zapateado dance tradition shares some elements of clogging and flatfooting. Estanzuela will provide music and dance to enliven a fandango in on Thursday March 10, 2022 at 7pm, at the Colombian Coffee Exchange at 1701 W. Market St. in Johnson City, TN. Estanzuale is made up of instrument-maker and musician Julio Corro Lara and his two children Aroma and Mariano Corro. Julio makes the instruments used by the group, including the jarana, guitarra de son, and harp. Sponsored by the ETSU Language and Culture Resource Center, this event is part of the larger project “Fandangos across borders: Bridging Cultures with Music, Dance, and Education,” a collaboration with the Festival of Texas Fiddling and the Center for Popular Music at MTSU. This project creates cross-cultural experiences for musicians, dancers, and audiences, creating new spaces for intercultural cooperation and community.
