Descripción del programa


Este programa será dirigido en inglés y todos están bienvenidos.

Join us for a Juneteenth celebration and performance by Santa Barbara Ring Shout Project. Ring Shout is a spiritual, traditional circle dance that enslaved Africans carried out when they were brought to the United States. It involves call and response singing, stomping, clapping, and beating on a wooden floor or surface with a stick to make rhythm. Ring Shout doesn't use musical instruments, it's an acapella style of singing.

Santa Barbara Ring Shout Project aims to preserve this tradition through education and performance.
