Hispanic Heritage Month Concert: New Inca Son

September 14 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm UTC+0

Free

Begin the celebration of National Hispanic Heritage Month a day early this year with a concert by New Inca Son at the National Museum of the American Indian. Acclaimed throughout the world for their performances of traditional Andean melodies and dances, the musicians of New Inca Son are committed to cultivating understanding and appreciation of Indigenous cultures, especially among children and young people.

The award-winning band is joined by scissors dancers Danzante Maldición and Supay Wayra. Traditionally danced in Quechua communities of south-central Peru, the Danza de Tijeras, or Scissors Dance, calls on dancers to outdo each other in acrobatic skill while striking scissors blades together to the changing rhythm and tempo of the music. No two scissors dances are ever the same, and every dance is a jaw-dropping experience.
