April 8, 2017 — Music of the Ethnic Minorities of Burma/Myanmar
This special performance of traditional music and dance from Burma is presented by members of the refugee community in San Diego. The artists are mostly Karen, an ethnic minority groups of Burma. This is a rare event, as it demonstrates the perseverance of the human spirit as it struggles to maintain and nurture traditional art forms when forced to relocate away from the homeland. This event is made possible through collaboration with the Karen Organization of San Diego.
Each program will be an intimate lecture-demonstration and mini-concert, in which the audience will have opportunity to interact with the artists. Having introduced us to their art form, the artists will perform a number of pieces.

6:00pm – Performance begins. Casual reception immediately following performance.
TIckets: $20/$15 Kalabash students
This is a casual BYOB event. Feel free to bring refreshments for yourself and your friends.
