Irka Mateo Performances

Log-in to Favorite

Irka performs with various folk Dominican music groups. These musicians share a passion for the musical folklore of their country. They play an array of folkloric genres going from rites music that finds its roots in the Congo to a mix of African and indigenous rhythms of the native Tainos to honor the summer solstice or the danceable rhythms to a messiah called Liborio Mateo. This is Caribbean ancestral music that spontaneously ignites joy and lifts the spirits.
