Betsayda Machado y La Parranda El Clavo

  • African American Museum of Philadephia 701 Arch Street Philadelphia, PA, 19106 United States (map)

March 30th, 2018: AfroTaino Productions in partnership with AAMP proudly present the return of Betsayda Machado y La Parranda El Clavo.

Betsayda Machado is the voice of Venezuela. Raised in the small village of El Clavo in the region of Barlovento, her recent rural recordings with lifelong friends, Parranda El Clavo, brought new attention to the Venezuelan Afro-Soul genre called ‘Tambor’. A spirit-shaking percussion and voice fiesta, said to make dancers float. 

After her sold-out performance at the African American Museum in Philadelphia in 2017, she returns to The City of Brotherly Love once again. Uplifting and powerful, this is a phenomenal show that should not be missed.


Tickets are $25, and available online via
