From the sounds of the cajón and the rhythms of bomba, to colorful skirts, fabulous footwork and flavorful cuisines, the Rhythmix Nuestros Colores Festival celebrates music, dance, art, food and culture from Latin and Indigenous traditions in an afternoon of fun for the whole family.

Rhythmix is thrilled to present an energetic lineup of local artists, featuring the electrifying beats of The Ka-Hon Ensemble with their soulful Latin American and Spanish melodies, the explosive rhythms of Batey Tambó’s Puerto Rican bomba, the colorful and spirited Colombian folk dance of La Cumbiamba Colombiana, the graceful and captivating Salvadoran folk dance of Ballet Folklorico Flor de Café, and the riveting tropical música caribeña of Bululú. Get ready for an unforgettable experience of vibrant cultural and artistic expression!

Explore a diverse range of Latin American art, including handmade crafts from Portal Artesanal, stunning tin art nichos from Devika’s Palacio, unique ritual kits from The Intuitive Goddess, and beautiful feather and bead ear wear and necklaces from Tomás Plata. And don’t forget to get an exquisite hand-painted mehndi from Mancha de Mehndi.

 

 

Kids can also unleash their creativity and learn about traditional Latin American art by making their own arte repujado (embossed tin art) and indigenous Taíno symbol rock paintings with local artists Rachel Anne Palacios and Mela Delgado.
