By BBN Staff: Today, the United States Embassy in Belize announced the visit of the music group Dawn Drake & ZapOte to Belize.
The group will be touring Belize from June 28 to July 1, 2018.
The United States shares the best of the U.S. arts community with the world to foster cross-cultural understanding and collaboration and to demonstrate shared values and aspirations.
American arts professionals – including performing artists, visual artists, poets, playwrights, theatrical and film directors, curators, and others– travel overseas to conduct workshops, give performances, and mentor young people.
U.S. music programs seek to connect with the international public who might not otherwise have the opportunity to engage with American arts professionals.
The U.S. Embassy says that it is very excited that the group chose to visit Belize.
The group will conduct a series of concerts and interactive workshops in Belize city, Belmopan and San Pedro, Ambergris Caye.
