Betsayda Machado @ Villa Victoria Center for the Arts | Boston | Massachusetts | United States

For decades, Betsayda Machado, along with her family and friends, have preserved the songs of their rural village, El Clavo, Venezuela; and now, they are bringing their music to our Villa Victoria Center for the Arts. Take a trip into the past with Machado and her band of natural musicians as they educate the world with their cultural heritage; they’ll play music of the Barlovento tradition, a genre influenced  by their Afro-Venezuelan ancestry. Celebrate the Venezuelan diaspora with this family friendly concert that’s reinforcing a town’s history and local anecdotes.
