About the Band
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.

Baracutanga musicians promote non-violence using their music as a vessel to increase and acknowledge cultural pluralism.  Their live shows are joyous, intense and explosive, propelled by the sounds of Andean flutes, charango, accordion, vibes, horns, guitar, bass, drums, vocal harmonies, and an array of percussion, often joined on stage, by Afro-Peruvian and Latin dancers.  Baracutanga have received multiple regional awards and recognitions and have performed across the Southwest, Rocky Mountains, and California, with stops in Calgary, NOLA, Austin and México.

The band played at PAS's Socorro Sessions Primero de Mayo Fiesta in the Macey Center Parking Lot.  Everyone was coming up to PAS Director, Ronna Kalish, saying "bring them back!"  And so we have.
