Mestisa Latin American Folk Music Ensemble
A project exploring the expression of creativity through growing flowers and food in our gardens during lockdown. All members of Mestisa, like many of our friends have been indulging in good food, trying to grow healthy diets to ward against the danger of the disease that haunts us all. We turned to Pachamama (mother earth) for comfort and to food that keeps us connected to our roots and families as we talk about recipes and growing tips. Many of the foods we grow also have Latin American roots and like us have settled here, like potato, pumpkin, maize, beans and artichokes. We also are part of a supportive online community of growers called Seeds of Hope, which gave us the idea for the project.
We will be playing a set relating to food, plants and garden, the visuals and interpretation will reflect the theme.
Date: Friday 18th September
