PHOTOS: Drums for coexistence at Costa Rica’s Arts Festival

Since its creation in 2010, the Spanish musical and socio-cultural group Bloko del Valle seeks to be an agent of social change through music.

Their latest efforts were seen by dozens of spectators during their presentation at 2018’s International Arts Festival (FIA). The group performed its show “Drums for Coexistence” with a group of children from the low-income community of Tirrases, Curridabat, just east of San José. The show’s message: music and percussion can be tools for change.
