5th Annual Fun Fest
Sunday, May 21, 12:30-5:30pm
Unity Park in downtown Turners Falls, MA.
This FREE all-day festival features world class musical performances, crafts, dance, and storytelling- entertainment for the whole family! Enjoy performances in a beautiful riverfront setting by the raucous Expandable Brass Band, three-time TONY award winner Abena Koomson-Davis, story weaver Djeli Forchion, Sir Mimealot, and Brazilian musician Isabella Mendes. Elsa Borrero will share a Latin dance workshop followed by high-energy Afro-Andean World Beat legends VIVA QUETZAL!
Viva Quetzal is a Massachusetts-based group featuring members originating in Chile, Panama, Venezuela and the U.S. Their music peppers its Andean roots with elements of rock, jazz and world beat. “…Viva Quetzal’s brand of music is more than eclectic or rhythmic, it’s spiritual, it’s all cultures existing as one. That’s universal music!” (Cashbox magazine, NYC).
