'World' festival set for Aug. 9
July 29, 2014
Celebrating its 15th year, World on the Square will return to Corydon’s downtown on Saturday, Aug. 9, from 4 to 8 p.m. with some of the free festival’s most popular performers returning. After the Ohio Valley Native American Veteran Warrior Society presents the American flag, bagpiper David Stewart, marching through the crowd in his kilt, will again kick off the entertainment. At 4:15, crowd-pleasing Raqia and her troop will return to do their Middle Eastern dance (aka belly dancing.) They will be followed by another longtime favorite, a tae kwon do demonstration by Master Rick Haines and his students, who also will be part of the South Korea exhibit. At 5:45, the dance show Bomba y Plena will begin. Plena is a narrative song from Puerto Rico, and Bomba is a style of music and dance imported from West Africa during the time of slavery. The evening of free live music — with opportunities to dance — will peak with the Salsa Rhythms band (piano, trumpets, conga drums, bongo drums, timbales and vocalists). ...more >>
