¡Fiesta Latina! is Payomet’s new two-day festival celebrating the history, diversity and depth of Latin American music. Featuring world-class artists and educational programs at Provincetown IB Schools, this year’s Fiesta features artists from Cuba, Venezuela and Puerto Rico (via Mexico and the Dominican Republic).
The music kicks off Saturday, June 3 with Mireya Ramos (Latin Grammy winning vocalist, songwriter and violinist and co-founder of the renowned all-female mariachi group Flor De Toloache), Jorge Glem (Latin Grammy winner and one of the foremost Venezuelan cuatro players in the world) and OKAN (a Juno-Award winning women-led ensemble that fuses Afro-Cuban roots with jazz, folk and global rhythms in songs about immigration, courage and love). On day 1 of the ‘fest, all artists will be supported by the Dario Acosta Teich Quintet.
After resting your feet from a night of irresistible rhythms, come back to the tent on Sunday, June 4, and enjoy an afternoon performance with the Pedrito Martinez Group (consummate master of Afro-Cuban folkloric music and the batá drum, who has recorded or performed with Wynton Marsalis, Paul Simon, Paquito D’Rivera, Chucho Valdez, Bruce Springsteen, Eddie Palmieri, Dave Matthews, Jackson Browne, Elton John, James Taylor and Sting, to name a few).
