A nine-piece percussion-driven band, Borboletta performs authentic renditions of the complex arrangements of Carlos Santana’s music from the past four decades to the present. The Tucson-based band will be one of several performers at the festival, which also features the Redhouse Jazz Band and the Berean Academy Jazz Band.
Visitors to the event will have the chance to experiment with Finale, a music composing and notation software, and pottery wheels. There also will be poetry, masks, beading, mural painting, drawing, painting and ceramics, and student artwork will be on display.
