M.A.K.U. Soundsystem

Thursday, August 11, 8:00 p.m.

About the Program

Rediscover America through the eyes and ears of this eight-piece, New York–based band of Colombian immigrants. M.A.K.U. Soundsystem showcase a thrilling hybrid of musical styles honoring their cultural heritage.

Psychedelic rock, funk, jazz, Afro-beat, and Caribbean rhythms blend with the music of indigenous Colombian peoples and West African and Spanish influences. As praised by NPR, “this raw-edged, punk-tinged band explodes with the propulsive force of traditional rhythms and urban restlessness.” The band formed in 2010 and has released two independent albums and one EP. Their latest album is entitled Mezcla (the Spanish word for “mix”).

Arrive early to enjoy a DJ set by Betto Arcos.
