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 Vera Cruz, 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.
