Domingos en Arte: Baracutanga

7:30 pm

Baracutanga is a seven-piece band representing four different countries (Bolivia, Ecuador, Peru, USA) that prides itself on arranging traditional South American rhythms in new and interesting ways, such as huayño and cumbia with Middle-Eastern darbuka or mixing Afro-Cuban bata and Afro-Peruvian festejo with Andean zampoñas, among several other rhythmic combinations. This kind of experimentation, coupled with blending ancestral traditions with a modern sensibility, has resulted in an exciting and distinct Latin flavor all its own that leaves dancing crowds always wanting more.
Advance $11, Day of Show $14

Domingos en Arte, a summer music and dance series presented by Melaza Music, AMP Concerts, and the National Hispanic Cultural Center is a family-friendly summer event on Sundays in NHCC’s charming Fountain Courtyard that features live music, drinks, and delicious Latin cuisine.

Domingos en Arte: Nosotros

7:30 pm

Nosotros is one of the most recognizable Latin bands in the Southwest United States. They have twice been featured on NPR’s Alt Latino, twice been named winners in the prestigious John Lennon Songwriting Competition, been awarded 11 NM Music Awards and have shared the stage with some of the biggest names in music. This 9-piece Latin music powerhouse seamlessly combines Latin rhythms with elements of Rock, Salsa, Jazz and Cumbia, creating an original sound that is unmistakably Nosotros. But M.E. Schenck of Hyperactive Music Magazine may have interpreted their sound best by saying “Nosotros’ music is not to be explained, it is to be felt in the pit of our souls.”

Domingos en Arte, a summer music and dance series presented by Melaza Music, AMP Concerts, and the National Hispanic Cultural Center is a family-friendly summer event on Sundays in NHCC’s charming Fountain Courtyard that features live music, drinks, and delicious Latin cuisine.

$11 in Advance, $14 Day of Show
