Rio Mira at The ArtsCenterName: Rio Mira at The ArtsCenterDate: October 13, 2018Time: 8:00 PM - 10:00 PM EDTEvent Description:Marimba, percussion, and vocals dominate the compelling sound of world-music super group Rio Mira, which brings to life the cultural heritage of people of African descent in the Colombian South Pacific region and Esmeraldas Province of Ecuador. In reworking and revitalizing this tradition, they create a mesmerizing performance that is both contemporary and unique, moving from call-and response vocal refrains to densely melodic dance numbers. Their most recent album, Marimba Del Pacifico, is comprised of five songs each from Colombia and Ecuador, demonstrating the “bi-national” nature of the project as well as the diversity of the cultural heritage they represent.
