October 2013 | Congo Culture | Gloria Forsythe

This was a very important workshop for many reasons. Congo culture is key to area of Colon and the community of Coco Solo. Unfortunately, a lot of the youth are not so aware of the importance of the traditions, dances, rhythms, and songs of their past. After this workshop, however, it seems that most of the participants were very motivated to form groups and continue practicing their culture. We are so grateful to Mts. Gloria, who was a Congo queen for many years and was able to inspire the youth of Coco Solo.
