A spirit-shaking percussion and voice fiesta, said to make dancers float! Venezuelan singer Betsayda Machado and her multigenerational band of musicians and dancers, La Parranda El Clavo, hail from the tiny Venezuelan village El Clavo—where their music has been igniting parties in the town square for over 30 years. These masterful performers have called new attention to the Venezuelan Afro-Soul beats known as tambor. Appearing at FirstWorks following their triumphant presentation at the WOMEX showcase in Poland, Betsayda and Parranda El Clavo are “the kind of group that world music fans have always been thrilled to discover: Vital, accomplished, local, unplugged, deeply rooted.” (The New York Times) / Presented in partnership with the Provost’s Office, Rhode Island School of Design /
