: 6:15-7:00 MUSIC PERFORMANCE by “ACHÉ OTÁN”

"Aché Otán" is an ensemble devoted to playing the sacred music of the Afro-Cuban religion, Santeria. More than entertainment, this music is used to evoke the spiritual pantheon--the orishas--of the religion at celebrations, ritual events and drum-dance ceremonies. This music thus acts as a means of bringing the gods down (or up) among the celebrants. Consisting of five members, Aché Otán has been playing in the Boston and Providence areas for eight years. All of its members both sing and play percussion. The group consists of Leonor Rodriguez (chekere), Deborah García (bell, drum), Nurudafina Pili Abena (drum, chekere), Julio Santos (chekere, bell, drum), and Glenn Jacobs (chekere, drum).
