Roots of Creativity

Caña Dulce y Caña Brava brings you a night of the music, poetry, dance, and traditional attire of Veracruz, Mexico. The group members are beneficiaries of the son jarocho culture and noteworthy performers with years of experience on both national and international stages.

The group stands out as an artistic union that highlights feminine poetry and voices, creating an experience that connects the spectator with distinct emotions. Voyage through multiple rhythms accompanied by traditional string instruments such as the harp and the jarana, percussion and zapateado, poetic improvisation in rhyme, and the projection of visual effects. Offering an assortment of colors, textures, and images to diverse and multi-generational audiences, the ensemble unites the traditional with the vanguard in a contemporary stage proposal.

Caña Dulce y Caña Brava navigates the Root and Song. They make us breathe deeply and connect us to the musical ancestors of our land; songs from a woman’s perspective and an origin worth appreciating.

Just Added!
Jóvenes en Acción, a group of teen dancers formed as part of Creative Alliance’s CIELO (Creative Immigrant Educators of Latin American Origins) department, opens the night and stays to dance with you! The performance troupe brings together Latin American teens to encourage self-expression and promote team building through traditional Mexican and Latin American dance. The teens also perform service-learning projects that foster giving back to the community while planting new roots in Southeast Baltimore.

This unique collaboration brings these teens living in Baltimore in direct contact with professional performers from a region they have been learning traditional dances from, they even perform attire created in the region. The ultimate learning experience!
