Across The Divide: A Tale of Three Worlds, by Baracutanga promises to be a thoughtful yet festive evening that will cross linguistic and cultural barriers, promote intercultural experiences, and create a new dialogue of peace and self-affirmation.  

Baragutanga is an African voicing that means “people dancing”. The band – representing four different countries (Bolivia, Ecuador, Peru, USA) – prides itself on arranging traditional South American rhythms, such as huayño and cumbia in new and interesting ways. Middle-Eastern darbuka or the Afro-Cuban bata and Afro-Peruvian festejo mix with Andean zampoñas, among countless other rhythmic combinations. This kind of experimentation, coupled with blending ancestral traditions with a modern sensibility, has resulted in an exciting and distinct Latin flavor all its own that leaves dancing crowds always wanting more.
