The Word On The Street has been renowned for the quality and diversity of its event programming and our next festival promises to offer the best so far. Please see the 2019 schedule below!
Ecuadorian Roots is the new folkloric dance troupe of the Ecuadorian Social Club of Lethbridge, with members from Ecuador, Colombia, Guatemala, France and Mexico. They enjoy sharing the varied and colourful folklore of this small yet beautiful and diverse South-American country. For those of you who have not heard about Ecuador, it is located on the Equator (latitude 0), South of Colombia and North of Peru. With over 18 ethnic groups and a generous biodiversity, this small country is very rich in both nature and culture. Eucadorian Roots will perform dances of the Pacific Coastal region of the country, on Marimba and Montubio rhythms.
