This summer, the Museum of World Cultures presents a programme of live shows, with the aim of exploring different cultures through their musical traditions. This week’s performance showcases the traditional dance from Panama—the Zaracundé. Originating in La Villa de los Santos, a town with a very small population of African origin in the south of Panama, this dance is an example of black rebellion against slave owners and bosses, traditionally performed as part of the Corpus Christi festival. Expect colourful costumes, loud music and lively dancing. Entrance is free.
