Journey the Atlantic / Viajando el Atlántico
June 3, 2022 @ 7:00 pm
Bembé welcomes you to our biggest production of the year, “Journey the Atlantic/Viajando el Atlántico,” a celebration of Afro-Latino musical culture!
Follow us on a journey from West Africa through Latin America and present day United States through music and dance, and enjoy performances by our Bembé youth and guest performers including our master artist-in-residence, Alberto “Beto” Torrens, Samba da Vida, and more! This is an intergenerational, all-star line-up!
This year’s celebration will take place at Marquette University’s Tony and Lucille Weasler Auditorium, 1506 W. Wisconsin Ave., Milwaukee, 53233. This performance is family-friendly, FREE, and open to the community. We hope you join us as we bring back one of our favorite productions.
