Event description

Description

Loisaida Inc. and its project The Plenatorium are pleased to host a performance and ritual stemming straight from the faith based history of Puerto Ricans in the Lower East Side. The "Feast of the Holy Cross" roughly translates into "Fiestas de Cruz" and members of the community have kept it alive from generation to generation through oral history. On these days during the month of May, many families, neighbors, friends and strangers would gather to recite a live rosary chant accompanied by Puerto Rican traditional plena sounds.

Musical Accompaniment / Quinto Sonó, Sammy Tanco, Nelly Tanco

Festival Coordinators / Maitreyi Villaman Matos, Yawo Pepe Flores, Bala Soto
