SUNDAY JULY 20th, 2008 - FROM 2PM TO 9PM
Club Folklorico Cubano of New York Presents:
LA FIESTA DEL MAMONCILLO
The Cuban Music and Dance Event of The Year!
CONCERT - DANCE - PARTY - Celebrating its 38th Year!
38 years in the U.S., but remarkably, La Fiesta Del Mamoncillo goes back over 70 years to the 1930's in Havana Cuba. On Sundays Cubans in La Habana would gather together in Los Jardines de la Tropical to dance. The dance was given in a park that had lots of mamoncillo trees in it - some other cultures call them quenepas or limoncillos or just plain mamon. The dance was open to everyone but was mostly attended by Afro-Cubans, because back then, in Cuba, there was a club for the white and mulatto Cubans and another club for the black Cubans. El Club Cubano Interamericano, which was started by mainly Afro-Cubans around 1970, continued that tradition here in the U.S. and 38 years later, they are still going strong. Come join us for this outdoor traditional festive celebration of Cuban music, dance and authentic cuisine. It’s truly a special and unique event!
