In a feast of authentic Afro-Cuban music and dance, light and images, El Viaje (The Journey) tells the story of forced emigration from Africa to the New World, and how spiritual and cultural resilience enabled slaves to adapt and re-establish themselves there with dignity.

"This is about my ancestors and my own family coming here to Pennsylvania from Puerto Rico to find work, but it’s also about Irish, Chinese, Italians, Jews and others. Migration under duress has been the history of so many ethnic and religious groups all over the world, and it's still true today."
