When Cultures Converge

Singers and dancers from Texas’s Danmar Academy of Performing Arts will stop in Miami this weekend to perform America Latina: A Mosaic of Cultural Expression, which could easily be subtitled Miami: The Musical. After all, we’re no strangers to the myriad cultures Mosaic represents: Cuba, Colombia, Puerto Rico, Nicaragua, Brazil, Peru, Argentina, Uruguay, Venezuela, and Mexico. That’s not a mosaic; it’s the makeup of the families on our block. Still, there’s a reason for this Latin American UN musical feast. Celebrating the bicentennial of several of its featured countries, Mosaic definitely provides a chance to do it for la raza. Take part in the pachanga as Latin American countries converge on one stage this Saturday at 8 p.m. and Sunday at 5 p.m. at the Gusman Center’s Olympia Theater.
Oct. 2-3, 8 p.m., 2010
