Don’t miss this fun, family-oriented evening of music celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month in Talbot County!
Providing the night’s entertainment is Miramba Linda Xelaju, a Guatemalan family band from Silver Spring dedicated to spreading their culture in America through their beloved marimba music.
Founded in 1992, the group is mainly composed of Robert Giron and his three children, whom Giron started teaching to perform when they were 3 years old. The transmission of musical knowledge from father to son is a very common practice in traditional music. However, the sharing of knowledge from father to daughter opens up new possibilities in the practice of Latino music!
The concert, brought to you through the partnership between the Avalon Foundation and the Chesapeake Multicultural Resource Center (ChesMRC), concludes a series of community events celebrating all the wonderful colors and flavors of Hispanic Heritage Month (September 15-October 15, 2023).
