Baracutanga is a seven-piece band, representing four different countries (Bolivia, Ecuador, Peru, USA), that blends South American ancestral traditions with a modern sensibility. The group’s exciting and distinct Latin flavor keeps crowds dancing and always wanting more.

Baracutanga creates sounds that cross linguistic and cultural barriers, building bridges between the south and the north, overcoming  barriers of discrimination and promoting intercultural experiences that empower Latinos and all people with a positive message of self-affirmation. The band promote non-violence; their music as a vessel to increase and acknowledge cultural pluralism.

Baracutanga‘s live shows are joyous, intense and explosive, propelled by Andean flutes, charango, accordion, vibes, horns, guitar, bass, drums, vocal harmonies, and an array of percussion, often joined on stage, by Afro-Peruvian and Latin dancers.

Baracutanga has received multiple regional awards and recognitions and has performed across the Southwest, Rocky Mountains, and California, with stops in Calgary, NOLA, Austin and México.
