|Barynya, a group that performs Russian music and dance, will kick off the 10th anniversary season of World City at The Music Center.|
Hailing from countries such as Russia, Colombia and Sweden, performers from all over the world will introduce their music and culture to Los Angeles-area families on select Saturdays or Sundays through May 18.
Performances are free and will take place at the W.M. Keck Foundation Children's Amphitheatre at Walt Disney Concert Hall downtown.
First on the lineup is Barynya, a group that performs traditional Russian, Ukrainian, Siberian and Jewish dances, among others. Not only will families be able to enjoy the traditional music and dance, but they'll also be able to check out the colorful, handmade costumes and instruments such as the balalaika (a triangular-shaped guitar).
Other performances on the schedule include Scandinavian dancers, a zydeco group and puppet theater from Taiwan.
Extra fun for the kiddos are the free passports that will be given out at each performance!
