(909) 607-1870

With an electrifying blend of 1950s- and 60s-style cumbia and high-energy, Afro-Colombian dance music, this Oakland-based Latinx octet's performances are suffused with horns, accordion, and percussive panache. "La Misa Negra" has been upending the Latin music genre, infusing tradition with outside musical influences … and contemporary subject matter," writes the San Francisco Chronicle. Swinging from sensually hypnotic to infectiously danceable tunes, "La Misa Negra" dares its audience to be energized and on its feet!This program is part of an ongoing series supported by Levitt Foundation and Elizabeth Levitt Hirsch '74.
