The Afro-Colombian group Las Alegres Ambulancias heads the opening show for the 11th annual International Folk Art Market. The band performs at 8:15 p.m. on Thursday, July 10, in the Santa Fe Railyard Park. The rhythm-intense music features players on alegre, congalegre, and tambora drums; other percussion instruments, including maracas and a guache; and electric guitar and bass.
The market event begins at 5 p.m., with an hour and a half of artist demonstrations by people from Mexico, Haiti, Madagascar, South Africa, Myanmar, and Peru. Albuquerque poets Andrea Serrano and Carlos Contreras offer readings in the 5:10 to 5:40 p.m. slot. Four musical acts perform from 5:45 to 7:30 p.m.: Indonesia’s Ida Bagus Anom Suryawan, Akeem Ayanniyi of Nigeria, Madagascar’s Edmond Rivo Randrianarisoa, and Alba Rosa Sepúlveda Tapia and Wilfredo Arriagada Sepúlveda of Chile.
