Join the Smithsonian Folklife Festival for a mid-week dance party! We don’t want to wait until the summer to start exploring the “social power of music,” so we’re taking over Tropicalia for one night to present Rio Mira, upbeat marimba music from Ecuador and Colombia. Bring your friends, your dancing shoes, and your open ears for this special event, part of the Flash of the Spirit international music festival.

Fronted by singer Karla Kanora, Río Mira is a musical collaboration guided by the distinctive percussive tones of the marimba. The marimba music of South Pacific Colombia and Esmeraldas Province, Ecuador, traces back to the maroon community, enslaved Africans who escaped in the Americas and formed independent communities with indigenous peoples. In 2015, UNESCO recognized their marimba music as Intangible Cultural Heritage.

Taking its name from a river that runs from Ecuador into Colombia, Río Mira is living proof of the rich history of the northwestern coast of South America. Recalling the history of the Pacific, the music is a reminder of the unity that binds together a region divided by state borders.

This concert is presented in partnership by the Smithsonian Center for Folklife and Cultural Heritage and Multiflora Productions.
