To commemorate the month long celebration of black history, the IFE-ILE Dance Company presents Tribute to the Waters. The event showcases an evening of music, art, and dance in praise of Ochun, the goddess of love and fertility; and Yemaya, the goddess of the sea. Based on the Afro Cuban Santería predictions, Ochun rules 2006 for Cubans in both Cuba and Miami, says IFE-ILE artistic director Neri Torres. What better way to celebrate this unusual fact than through our own rich black heritage of dance, music, and traditions? Beginning tonight at 7:00 at Molina Art Gallery, happenings include the colorful art of Cuban Luis Molina and a brief lecture about Santería predictions. And like all Cuban events, we close with a rumba, adds Torres. Admission is free. Call 305-476-0388, or visit www.ife ile.org.
Wed., Feb. 22, 7 p.m.
