Noche NELCWIT hosted by Iroko Nuevo

Sunday, September 18, 2016, 2:00 pm until 3:30 pm
Tickets: $10 general (children 12 and under free)

Join Iroko Nuevo for an afternoon of music and dance to benefit the New England Learning Center for Women in Transition, NELCWIT. In the Afrocuban region Lucumi, or Sangeria, the iroko tree is a gathering place for the orishas, the saints and ancestors of African religion. The dancers, musicians and singers of Iroko Nuevo gather in the same spirit, believing that dance, drum and song are not only good for the soul, but help to build community
