Good music will arrive at the Magic Water Circuit this Saturday, March 5 at 6 pm with the groups Bacanos and AfroPeruwho will perform a free show to strengthen the integration between Peruvians and Venezuelans.
The event, entitled Concert for the Union, is held as part of the campaign of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) #TuCausaEsMiCausa, which seeks to strengthen and promote solidarity with refugees and migrants.
The event will feature the participation of the group Bacanos from Venezuela, recognized for their fusion of vallenato and pop; and the AfroPerú band, who join in with their style of Afro-Peruvian music. Venezuelan singers Cristina López and JDB will also participate.
Concert tickets will be available on the Joinnus platform at the following link, with a new batch of tickets to be released.
On the importance of holding a concert of this type, UNHCR representative in Peru, Federico Agusti, pointed out that: “The universal language of music unites cultures and hearts, no matter where we are. This concert is a space to enjoy that union and for the integration between refugees and migrants with the Peruvian community, which has received them with enormous solidarity.”
For the concert, all biosafety protocols established by the government will be respected, such as the mandatory use of a KN95 mask or double simple mask, the presentation of the vaccination card, as well as mandatory social distancing. It will also be essential to present your identification document.
#TuCausaEsMiCausa is co-led by UNHCR and the International Organization for Migration (IOM) with the financial support of the Spanish Cooperation Agency (AECID), the Office of Population, Refugees and Migration of the Department of State of the United States of America (PRM) and the European Union.
