About the Program
Rapper, musician, and spoken-word artist Telmary is a pioneer of Cuban hip-hop in a world traditionally dominated by men. Telmary uses her distinctive voice—at times deep and soulful, other times rapid-fire and aggressive—to deliver positive and forceful messages that take on contemporary issues surrounding the status of women and racism.
Heavy doses of salsa, percussion riffs, and classic Cuban dance moves make for an energized experience that brings down the house each time Telmary ascends to the stage. Her brisk and emotionally charged anthems encourage us to unleash our feminism on the dance floor. ¡A bailar mi gente!
Arrive early for some pre-concert fun! While picnicking and enjoying the Skirball’s hillside courtyard, enjoy a set by DJ Sizzle Fantastic, and from 7:00 to 7:45 pm, learn salsa moves with dance instructor Laroye Aña! All levels welcome.
