Thu, July 6, 2017, 7:30 PM – 10:00 PM CDT
One of the great sensations of the current Puerto Rican salsa scene, Orquesta el Macabeo recovers the island's salsa tradition to update it with new ideas and the energy of its twelve musicians, with backgrounds in punk rock, ska and reggae.The self-proclaimed rockeros con guille de salseros (rockers posing as a salsa band) deliver a hard-hitting salsa edge.

Named in honor of Ismael Rivera's 1978's classic, the series explores traditional and progressive takes on Afro-Caribbean Music seen through performances of local and touring groups.
