 De Rompe y Raja Cultural Association

 Phoebe A. Hearst Museum of Anthropology

Based in Oakland and dedicated to preserving Afro-Peruvian traditions from the coastal region of Peru, the group will perform Son de los Diablos, a street masquerade that originated in colonial Lima with parades through Afro-Peruvian neighborhoods during carnival time. Dancers will wear masks made in Peru by Grupo Cultural Yuyachkani, and locally by Edmund Badeaux (Chaskinakuy Andean music group). This performance will occur in the courtyard of the Hearst Museum of Anthropology.

Stop by all day for free admission to the Hearst Museum in celebration of Cal Day 2018 and check out the current exhibit Face to Face: Looking at Objects That Look at You. This timely exhibit cultivates critical thinking about crucial issues such as stereotyping, representation and misrepresentation, and snap judgments. Visitors are invited to examine the way they themselves depict and interpret faces in their everyday lives.
