FandangObon, a musical dialogue workshop conducted by a group of L.A. based artists, connects traditions, communities, death and life. Participants convene in a circle. They perform the music and dance traditions of Fandango of Veracruz, Mexico (with African, Mexican and indigenous roots), Japanese Buddhist Obon (circle dances in remembrance of ancestors), and West African dances (from Nigeria and New Guinea). Created through a collective process, the pieces express a common goal: cultural and environmental sustainability.
This event is cosponsored by the departments of Modern Languages and Literatures, Asian and Asian American Studies, Chicana/o & Latina/o Studies, Theological Studies, the Bellarmine College of Liberal Arts, the College of Communications and Fine Arts, Vice Provost for Global-Local Initiatives, and Ethnic and Intercultural Services.
