A selection of 19 national and international groups make up the poster for the 2020 edition of the Festivalfff. The presentation of Tanque, Ricardo Pita, Munn, Mafiandina and other groups will be broadcast this Saturday and Sunday, via the festival’s website and social networks.

The Metropolitan Symphonic Band of Quito celebrates 30 years of experience with a concert of academic music and traditional Ecuadorian rhythms.

The live broadcast will be through the Fundación Teatro Nacional Sucre pages on Facebook and YouTube.

Painting, drawing, collage, photography, objects and video art merge in the exhibition “Neotropical Fables” by Teo Monsalve.
