Caponi Art Park will be the home of two CAP Super Saturday events in August.
Kalpulli Ketzal Coatlicue is scheduled for 10 a.m. Aug. 10, which features a journey in the past to experience the rhythms and colorful costumes of the ancient Aztecs.
Participants will learn symbols of the Meso-American calendar, experience the rhythms of an ancient people, and begin to understand the connections between ritual and daily life.
Siama and Dallas will play at 10 a.m. Aug. 24.
In Africa, Congolese musician Siama Matuzungidi recorded hundreds of songs and toured the world with many popular soukous artists. Soukous is a genre of dance music known as “the sound of happiness.”
The primary instrument in soukous music is the rhythm guitar.
Matuzungidi and with his wife and co-creator Dallas are passionate about sharing the experience they had together visiting family and encourage sing-alongs in Kikongo, Lingala, Swahili and English.
The event is free to attend with a $5 suggested donation. Audience members are encouraged to bring lawn chairs or a blanket to spread on the grass.
Caponi Art Park is located at 1220 Diffley Road in Eagan.
