Dubbed the Region’s ‘biggest outdoor dance party,’ Kultrún is a family-friendly celebration of diversity featuring local, national and international world music bands, all-ages interactive activities, workshops by professional artists, performance art, a food, craft and art market and a beer garden cantina. This year’s line-up includes high-energy trad-folk Québécois bands, Moroccan gospel, flamenco, Afro and Latin jazz, Brazilian forró and lots more fantastic world music! Excepting a ticked opening Gala July 8th at TheMuseum, Kultrún is a FREE festival taking place July 9-10 in Downtown Kitchener’s Victoria Park. The Festival runs Saturday from 12noon - 11pm and Sunday from 12noon - 9pm.
*Kultrún (cool-troon). For the Mapuche people of Chile a Kultrún is not simply a drum, it is also the heartbeat of life embodied in the sound and rhythm of a drum.
