Performances by Musical Group Moodafaruka Added to Coexistence Exhibit
 

HOUSTON, TX (April 14, 2005) - The musical group Moodafaruka will entertain visitors to the 39-piece traveling art exhibit Coexistence during its remaining two weekends on display surrounding the reflection pool at Houston City Hall, 900 Bagby.

The five-member musical group mixes Flamenco, Middle Eastern, Spanish and Western motifs to create a tapestry of sound that is both familiar and new. Its music serves to remind audiences that the global community is a multicultural, multiethnic and multilingual village and of the common values shared by all humanity.

Weather permitting, the group will perform on stage:
* Saturday, April 23 - 12 p.m. to 7 p.m.
* Sunday, April 24 - 12 p.m. to 7 p.m.
* Saturday, April 30 - 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
* Saturday, May 1 - 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

All performances and the open-air art exhibition are free to the public. Commissioned by the Museum on the Seam in Jerusalem, Coexistence includes billboard-size panels created by artists from around the world. The show has visited 18 cities and runs through May 1. The show is sponsored by the Holocaust Museum Houston, the Cultural Arts Council of Houston/Harris County, Houston Downtown Alliance, The Boniuk Center for the Study and Advancement of Religious Tolerance at Rice University and Interfaith Ministries for Greater Houston Partnership. Major funding for the exhibit was provided by Prisma Energy.
