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. Lyrically and musically, Baracutanga strives to build bridges between the South and the North, overcoming the barriers of discrimination. More Info >>
Voted “BEST LATINX BAND” and “BEST PARTY BAND” in the Weekly Alibi’s ‘Best Of Burque Music 2019‘
“If you want to party, ask Baracutanga to join the fracas. With their toothsome combination of South American rhythms, Carribbean counterpoint and social justice-inspired lyricism, this septet featuring the nexus of Jackie Zamora, Kilko Paz and Carlos Noboa will have the entire room zooming and jamming and just plain feeling good within moments of taking up their instruments and taking a tuneful turn with their audience following closely in time.” – Weekly Alibi, March 28, 2019
