Barrio Stage @ Touchstone
TICKETS: FREE! Donations gratefully accepted.
No reservations required; all are welcome!
Join us for a participatory celebration of Latinx culture: a community jam session or bombazo! Bring your musical instruments, or borrow one of ours. This night of jams led by local Latinx musicians is a showcase for individuals and community groups alike. All are invited to join in the performance, with young people sharing poetry, senior citizens telling stories, and multiple styles of music coming together on stage in a celebration of community and culture. Play along, sing along, or just kick back and enjoy the food, friendship, and fiesta!
