FIRST FRIDAY AT THE BARNES! (in association with AfroTaino Productions) presents JARANA BEAT

  • The Barnes Foundation 2025 Benjamin Franklin Parkway Philadelphia, PA, 19130 United States (map)

Recipient of the 2015 Mexican Music Award for Best Contemporary Folk Band, Jarana Beat is a world music band incorporating dance and activism. The group blends the origins of Mexican music with contemporary elements and other musical traditions to offer a new interpretation of Afro-Amerindian Mexico. This program is part of Mexican Week in partnership with the Mexican Cultural Center and the Consulate of Mexico. Jarana Beat is coming fresh off the road from touring with Mexican vocal star Lila Downs, so you won’t want to miss out on this performance from this dynamic ensemble.

6PM – 9PM; $28; college students $10 (walk-up only); members free. Collection access included.
