The "Primer Festival Latinoamericano en Amsterdam" is a gathering of musicians, dancers, craftsmen, and artisans to joyfully welcome the summer solstice in the northern hemisphere through Latin American music, dance, art, and cuisine.
During the ancient times the winter solstice was celebrated in Cusco through "Wawa Inti Raymi" (Celebration of the Sun Child), one of the most important religious ceremonies which marked the beginning of the winter solstice in the southern hemisphere. MATRIA PRODUCTIONS, thus inspired by these ancestral traditions, wants to invite the Latin American and Dutch community to this celebration, so that the sun will illuminate this world with the love and blessings of heavens.
At 12.00 p.m, an open market will sell arts & crafts and local products from Latin America. Food inspired by traditional Latin American cuisine will also be offered for those looking for a quick bite during lunch or even for snacking throughout the festival. At 14.30, a film for kids will be shown.
At 18.00 hrs, musicians and dancers from different regions of the continent (Chile, Peru, Brazil, Colombia and Argentina) will perform, including a Karaoke contest with fantastic prizes to be awarded. Delicious traditional dishes showcasing Latin American cuisine will continue to be offered; and of course, the festivities will conclude with a Cumbia band and 3 DJ's playing salsa, bachata and cumbia music!
