Fowler Museum – Sinful Saints and Saintly Sinners at the Margins of the Americas w Samba N Motion & Samba Society 03’29’2014

The Fowler Museum at UCLA had the opening for their exhibition Sinful Saints and Saintly Sinners at the Margins of the Americas hosting a night of music and warmth.  The exhibition depicts mixed media art installations depicting “divine” beings in Mexico, Brazil, Guatemala, Argentina and the United States. I was personally exited to see the figure of San Simon… correction, Malverde (for Mexico… San Simon for Guatemala); I grew up with this figure around and was glad to be present for the unveiling of this show.

As a very special touch, the Fowler Museum had the dance group Samba N Motion integrated by Ana Laidley, Scott Hsieh and   Japanese producer and dancer Yuki Shimotakahara (one of my favorite music producers Japan-Boyle Heights fusion in Los Angeles).  Sammba N Motion did a Malandro performance blending samba, capoera and other Brazilian influences engaging audience and dancers through out the night. This versatile evening also included a special performance by Samba Society singing the night away with alluring forrõ and more.
