Cinco de Mayo Party! Baracutanga, Huerta Culture
May 5, 2017 @ 9:00 pm - 2:00 am$5
With its provenance as a group that featured Brazilian percussive rhythms in 2009, the New Mexico based award-winning sensation, Baracutanga, quickly found its one-of-a-kind identity in exploring and mixing the many danceable rhythms of South America. The seven-piece band – representing four different countries – prides itself on arranging traditional South American rhythms in interesting ways, such as huayño and cumbia with Middle-Eastern derbuka or the Afro-Cuban bata and Afro-Peruvian festejo blended with Andian zampoñas, among countless other rhythmic combinations. This kind of experimentation has resulted in an exciting and iconic flavor all its own that leaves dancing crowds wanting more.
