UNM will welcome Latin-inspired band Baracutanga on Thursday, September 21st. They will be playing a free concert in front of the SUB (east side) from 12:00-1:00pm.
"Baracutanga is a seven-piece band, representing four different countries (Bolivia, Ecuador, Peru, USA), that blends South American ancestral traditions with a modern sensibility, whose exciting and distinct Latin flavor keeps crowds dancing and always wanting more. Baracutanga creates songs that cross linguistic and cultural barriers, building bridges between the south and the north, overcoming the barriers of discrimination and promoting intercultural experiences that empower Latinos and all people with a positive message of self-affirmation." (Band's website)
