WorldBeat Center presents Mixtec traditional music and dance to raise funds for the sanitary sewer system project in Santa Maria Natividad!

Mixtec is a Central American Indigenous population living in the northern and western sections of the state of Oaxaca and in neighboring parts of the states of Guerrero and Puebla in southern Mexico. Since the first settlers arrived over 2500 years ago it has developed a strong regional identity with its dances and artwork famous throughout the country and its language one of the two most popular indigenous tongues. Lately musicians such as internationally famous Lila Downs and the late Alvaro Carrillo together with a host of artists have continued the region’s rich creative tradition.

Our Mixtec performers are from a small town called Santa Maria Natividad. Unfortunately, they come from one of the most vulnerable and marginalized indigenous groups in Mexico. And, they want to make a difference in their hometown fellows’ life. Now, they are in the process of constructing a much-needed sanitary sewer system in Santa Maria Natividad. The purpose of this Mixtec cultural performance is to raise funds for the sewer system while presenting you a feast of their amazing culture.

At this event, there will be a Mixtec traditional band, a DJ, a group to play Cumbia and salsa and Mixtec traditional food. In addition, we are going to display photos of the project and raffle movie tickets.

The name of the Mixtec Town is Santa Maria Natividad
