The rich cultural traditions of the nations of the West Indies will be celebrated in Traversing Traditions / West Indies at Charter Oak Cultural Center.
Traversing Traditions / West Indies is a month-long celebration of the music, visual arts, and dance of the West Indies. High-caliber performing artists will present both traditional and contemporary music and dances native to the West Indies. The visual and media arts segments redefine notions of the “contemporary” through an amalgamation of traditional, indigenous, popular, and current art practice by the featured artists.Taken as a whole, Traversing Traditions explores the interconnected nature of the art belonging to West Indies nations.
The series closes on September 13 with Traversing Traditions: Closing Reception. Join us for complimentary refreshments as we conclude our month-long celebration!
