Afro-Colombian musical ensemble Grupo Rebolu interprets the traditional sounds of their homeland: gaita, tambura, chalupa, and bullerengue, with original compositions reflecting on their New York home.

The group was created from the desire of Ronald Polo, (vocalist/composer/gaitero), Morris Canate, (master folkloric percussionist), and later on Johanna Castaneda (Vocalist/musician) to promote the rich musical traditions of their ancestors; the Afro-descendants of Colombia's Caribbean coast.

INTERACTIVE DANCE WORKSHOP AT 3 PM

Move to the incredibly danceable music of Grupo Rebolu! Learn the traditional steps of cumbia, puya, mapale, and bullerengue in this pre-show workshop and then hit the floor at the show. FREE with tickets to 4 PM concert. Come early to score a free percussion instrument! (first come, first served)

AFRO-COLOMBIAN MUSIC & DANCE AT 4 PM

Led by Ronald Polo (vocalist, composer, gaiter), Morris Canate (percussionist) and Johanna Castaneda (vocalist), Grupo Rebolu is loaded with energy, history, and danceability. Bring your instruments for a post-show jam session with the band.

    The mission of Flushing Council on Culture and the Arts (FCCA) is to present multi-disciplinary global arts that engage and educate the global communities of Queens and New York City in order to foster mutual appreciation.  As advocates of arts equity since 1979, they support local, immigrant, national, and international artists, developing partnerships and collaborations that enhance our efforts. 

    Flushing Town Hall provides exciting opportunities for kids and families to encounter the arts together.  Their performance series showcases talented professionals from a variety of performing arts and cultures whose shows have proven to be entertaining for audience members young and old.  Their interactive arts compliment these presentations by giving kids and families a fun opportunity to do a hands-on exploration of the show's art forms taught by the performers or Flushing Town Hall teaching artists.
