Celebrate culture at upcoming Hispanic Heritage Festival
SHREVEPORT, La. (KSLA) - As the Hispanic Heritage Festival approaches next weekend, KSLA News 12 was joined by Nelly and José Guzman on Tuesday, Oct. 3 to discuss culture, music and traditional Aztec dances.
They talked all about the importance of the Aztec dances and the symbolism of the ritual to Mexico and its culture. Both have been dancing for twenty years. Jose even showcased his drum playing skills at KSLA, which was just a small sample of what people forward to at the Hispanic Heritage event.
This Aztec dance is meditation in motion. It brings the dancers into a meditative state with repetitive rhythm and movement.
The dance is performed by Nelly while José plays drums in the video below:
You can catch Nelly and José performing at the Hispanic heritage event, along with their entire group.
