La Patronal at Flushing Town Hall

Event description:

Fall/Winter 2018 season kick-off dance party with La Patronal! Rooted in the tradition of ‘fiestas patronales’ or town fairs common in rural villages across Latin America, this unique brass band from Lima, Peru presents Peru’s most rooted heritage and traditions through music and dance. Their lively performances encourage audience participation and dancing with contagious percussion and vibrant brass and winds. La Patronal members are direct descendants of rural musicians from Peru, and use this knowledge of folk culture in combination with their formal music studies to preserve their heritage while also bringing it to the present.
