Performance Information

Elena & Los Fulanos came together on the streets of D.C.’s rapidly changing neighborhoods of Columbia Heights and Mt. Pleasant, where working immigrant communities co-exist with young political and nonprofit leaders. That is where Elena was introduced to the District’s mariachi, son, and punk music crowds and met her future band members. Together they are part of the city’s growing indie and international music scene.

This event is co-presented by Dance Place and Mars Arts D.C., a project of Mars, Incorporated and Washington Performing Arts, generously supported by Jacqueline Badger Mars. This performance is part of Washington Performing Arts’ global programming initiative, The World in Our City: Latinx in D.C., which provides perspective on what it means to be a citizen of the world through a unique arts-based lens.
