Dubbed The Black Voice of Barlovento, Venezuelan singer Betsayda Machado is seen as the carrier of a long tradition of nearly extinguished black music genres. In what's sure to be a stunning performance, Machado is joined by her hometown's resident percussion ensemble—La Parranda El Clavo. El Clavo began as a joyful, unstructured jam group decades ago, and has matured into a virtuoso percussion and voice ensemble. The music's raw percussive nature is reminiscent of other African-rooted music—from countries like Colombia, Cuba and Brazil—but was born of its own unique history and culture. Join us for an unforgettable summer evening at Bing Concert Hall.
