Southern Exposure: Performing Arts of Latin America

Betsayda Machado & La Parranda El Clavo, Venezuela

Project

Bringing passion and color through traditional rhythms and dances, Betsayda Machada and La Parranda El Clavo—her village’s own multi-generational band—invite audiences to discover, indulge, and celebrate the contagious beats of Afro Venezuelan soul. The energizing percussion and vocal ensemble presents an engaging repertoire cultivated through centuries of African tradition and musical influence in Venezuela. After a successful 2016 Canadian tour and performances at globalFEST, and The Public Theater’s Joe’s Pub, Betsayda Machado & La Parranda El Clavo tour the United States with the support of Southern Exposure: Performing Arts of Latin America in 2017-2018.
