Somos Amigos: Songs on Common Ground
Friendship is at the heart of Somos Amigos: Songs on Common Ground, a joyful new collaboration between Mexican songstress Sonia De Los Santos, and the Americana folk duo The Okee Dokee Brothers. This bilingual program includes both old and new songs that span the musical traditions of North America and illustrate the collective power of singing together and learning from each other. With an adventurous spirit and a common vision of peace and understanding, Somos Amigos encourages young and old to explore, dance, sing, and laugh together, hand in hand.
In addition to these special live shows, Festival favorite Chicks on Sticks and an outdoor kite display by artist Barbara Meyer are part of the experience.

Mask mandates from the State of Minnesota and City of Saint Paul have been lifted, so masks will not be required at our performances. However, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that unvaccinated individuals wear masks in indoor settings, so masks will be strongly encouraged, especially for those who are not vaccinated. All Ordway and Arts Partnership staff will wear masks at performances.
