About the event
Opening performance by Freedom Dabka Group
The three members of Soles of Duende are bonded by a deep love of music, craft, and connection. Formed in East Harlem, the multicultural, all-female percussive trio is on a lifelong mission to elevate the joy and music of true collaboration across disciplines. The group celebrates connections across different styles of dance and music-making, based primarily in the sounds of Tap (Amanda Castro), Flamenco (Arielle Rosales), and Kathak (Brinda Guha). They will perform at Jacob’s Pillow for the first time this summer.
Also making their Pillow debut, Freedom Dabka Group is a professional brotherhood dedicated to preserving and spreading Palestinian culture. Established in 2012 among six family members, Freedom Dabka Group has become a cultural icon of the New York and New Jersey Middle Eastern community, bringing a modern interpretation to Dabka folk dances and to Zaffa music and songs by performing in celebratory and cultural events across the United States and Canada.
