Tersi Bendiburg (Storyteller)

Tersi is a bilingual storyteller, born in Cuba. At ten years old her family left Cuba and moved to Decatur, Georgia. This life-changing event presented many personal challenges, but stories made, and continue to make this process easier. Growing up, Tersi enjoyed folktales, legends, and family stories from her parents and from the close knit Cuban community in Decatur. Now a teller of these tales, nurtured in her fragile roots allowing them to grow deep and strong in the red Georgia clay, blend these two cultures.

Alma Mexicana Danza Folklórica (Dancers)

Alma Mexicana means Mexican Soul and Danza Folklórica means folk dancing. Put them together and you have the soul of Mexican culture and customs brought to life through music, dancing and colorful costumes that will be a feast for the senses. Don’t miss this exciting performance especially crafted for audiences with young children that will take them on a virtual journey to Veracruz, Chihuahua, Michoacan, Sinaloa, Yucatan and much more of Mexico. And when the music moves you, don’t keep your seat — get up and dance a little too! Based in Lilburn, Alma Mexicana has been performing traditional Mexican dances for the last seven years.

Mariachi Jaliciense prides itself on an impressive trajectory. The group consists of four talented mariachis, with more than 20 years of experience. In just five years they have become an on-stage sensation, accompanied by distinguished artists such as the beautiful and talented Maribel Guardia. After a successful debut on our Noche Latina, Mariachi Jaliciense returns for the third time to delight on our Day of the Dead celebration.
