MOLINE, ILLINOIS (August 31, 2022) — Immerse yourself in song and dance with a lively, interactive performance from Son Monarcas, Friday, September 23, 12PM. This event will be held at the Moline Public Library as part of Quad City Arts Visiting Artist Series. Registration is not required.

The musicians and dancers of Son Monarcas will showcase traditional music and dance from Latin America. The program "Butterfly Fandango" explores the Indigenous, African, and Spanish influences on the movement, rhythms, and melodies of Latin America. The audience will enjoy the collection of songs and dances featuring traditional authentic instruments from all over Latin America. Dance includes Aztec drum and dance and zapateado (foot tapping) from Mexico.

The program is very participatory throughout and aims to teach about the geography, history, and culture of Mexico through the arts, always ending with time for questions and answers from the audience.
