Tickets: $12 adv., $15 dr. Mala Maña, New Mexico's own women's vocal and drum ensemble, draws their inspiration from the rhythms of Afro-Colombia’s Atlantic and Pacific coasts, but does not stop there. Woven into the mix are contemporary beat-boxing, African-American traditional, Caribbean reggaeton, Mexican cumbia, and their own cumbia-inspired original compositions. Like a collective, Mala Maña consists of 8 women who share diverse backgrounds in African and Latin pop, flamenco dance, and Mexican norteño music. Their love for the rhythm-inspired music of Colombia’s coastal people brought this vision of diversely-talented women together to offer a unique and exciting tapestry of many voices and many drums. Mala Maña's members are: Chava (Chava and Paid My Dues Blues Band, Chava and SoMA, Guajira), Alyson Steinman (Wagogo, Chava and Paid My Dues Blues Band), Lydia Garcia (Concepto Tambor, Kev Lee & the Uprisings, Law of Attraction, Tobias Rene, Grupo Galán), Carolina Acuña (Omeyocan, National Institute of Flamenco), Lupe Mendoza, Tatiana Schotte, Maria Teresa Guevara, and Amanda Picker.
