Description

*Events are rain or shine and that tickets are available online or at the gate.

Baracutanga is an African voicing that means “people dancing”. Because of its onomatopoeic sound, it’s a reminder of the percussive instruments that were dispersed throughout the Americas by African diaspora that has vitally nurtured our native cultures. Baracutanga is a group of experienced musicians of diverse backgrounds and origins that proposes to build bridges between the south and the north, overcoming the barriers of discrimination. The south conjugates the past and the future and it is there where we find our roots as a key to survive in a modern world. Our music carries a message of reflection to ignite a positive change of attitudes; which must begin within us and with the acknowledgement of cultural pluralism.

Most Botanic Garden exhibits, the BUGarium and the Aquarium are open until 8 p.m. during Summer Nights Concert events.

Gates open at 6 p.m. Music starts at 7 p.m.
