13th Annual CubaCaribe Festival: Lecture/Demo & Reception - Bobi Céspedes
The 13th Annual CubaCaribe Festival, March 30-April 7, 2017, will feature nine days of Caribbean dance and music performances, seven world premiere performances, master classes, film screenings, lectures and celebrations at two different San Francisco venues, Brava Theater and Museum of African Diaspora. The CubaCaribe Festival has been highly acclaimed for being the only festival to present popular, contemporary and folkloric cultural expression, religion, history, and politics of the Afro-Caribbean Diaspora. This years Festival, entitled Manos De Mujeres, will delve into the complex role of women, it will highlight and honor the important work of women and their powerful hands that have and continue to sustain us.

Lecture/Demonstration & Reception - Bobi Céspedes' Manos Divinas: Female Orisha in the Lucumí Spiritual Tradition

Acclaimed singer and folklorist, Bobi Céspedes, will lead us to a deeper understanding of the divine feminine forces (Orishas) in the Lucumí (Cuban-Yoruba) pantheon using song, storytelling and lecture. Through chants sung in a call and response pattern, the community can join in giving praise to Obatala, Yemaya, Oshun and other female Orishas. As Lucumí priestess and respected elder, musician and bandleader, Bobi Céspedes has earned a place among the most preeminent artists and cultural arts educators in the Bay Area.
