Festival latino is an annual event that showcases the culture and traditions of Latin America. It features music, dance, food, and fashion from the region. The festival is free and open to the public. It is held in Columbus, Ohio. It is the largest event of its kind in the state.
In recent years, Latin music has experienced a surge in popularity. High streaming numbers and cross-cultural collaborations, not only with Anglo stars, but also African artists, have led to a rise in new audiences. And while most music fans are aware of pop, hip hop, and rock, there is a growing interest in Latin genres as well. As a result, more and more Latin artists are gracing the stage at music festivals.
A Latin music festival can feature a wide range of styles, from traditional to contemporary. It can include performances by classical, folk, jazz, reggaeton, and other popular music from the region. It may also include performance art and poetry readings. Some festivals even feature Latin film screenings.
The best Latin music festivals offer a unique opportunity to experience the music and culture of the region. They are also a great way to discover rising artists and connect with the fan base. With such a large and diverse audience, these events can help promote the genres of music that are often ignored.
Some elements of a Latin music festival focus on honoring more traditional and sometimes ancient cultural traditions. For example, performers may wear traditional costumes or perform ritual dances. In addition, many artists incorporate modern music and dance into their performances as well.
This year, the festival will celebrate its 25th anniversary. The event will take place in Genoa Park and will feature music, children’s activities, art, and food from Latin America.
Aside from being a great event for the whole family, the festival also brings attention to small Latino businesses in Lexington. These companies share their authentic cuisines and products at the event, which attracts a lot of people from the community. The festival has become a vital part of the lives of the local Latino community.
The festival features a variety of different dance, music, and theater acts that celebrate the richness of the Latino culture. It includes the work of some of the finest artists from Latin America, as well as those from other parts of the world. Fulcrum Point New Music Project, a leader in classical contemporary music, is among the featured performers at the festival.
This year’s lineup features a mix of bachata, salsa, merengue, and latin trap from artists such as pop sensation Billie Eilish, Brazilian singer Anitta, and Dominican rappers Chimbala, Chocolat, Mozart La Para, and Dowba Montana. And of course, it wouldn’t be a Latin music festival without some good old-fashioned reggaeton.
The film DARLING at the Festival was Rich Kids, which tackles the issues of classism that pervade Latino and general society. In a world addicted to reality shows about the wealthy, this story tells the true cost of materialism.
