Baracutanga

 A Community of Rhythm, Song & Culture

Saturday, November 17, 2018 – 7:30 p.m.

Baracutanga is a seven-piece band representing four different countries (Bolivia, Ecuador, Peru, and the USA) that prides itself on arranging traditional South American rhythms in new and interesting ways. This kind of experimentation, blending ancestral traditions with a modern sensibility, yields an exciting and distinct Latin flavor all its own. Lyrically and musically, Baracutanga builds bridges between the south and the north. With their affinity and respect for native rhythms from the lands of their ancestors, the group finds common ground in creating songs which cross linguistic and cultural barriers.

Our Season

The 32nd season of Music in Corrales continues our mission of enriching our community with great music.  The 8-concert series includes classical piano and guitar, folk/Americana, an eclectic string quintet, a saxophone quartet, a Western singer/songwriter, and more – something for every musical taste, selected to delight and inspire you.

Music in Schools

Corrales Cultural Arts Council (CCAC ) recognizes that each child is an individual; that all children are creative; that all children need to succeed. We are committed to fostering a sense of community as well as offering the highest level of musical performance and instruction. Our hope is to provide students of all ages with the skills they need
to enjoy music for a lifetime.

Musical Mission

The all-volunteer Corrales Cultural Arts Council (CCAC) created the Music in Corrales series in 1986 as a musical offering to the Corrales community. The series was conceived as a way of preserving New Mexico’s vast musical and cultural heritage, and a way to create a new one as well. What was started by a few dedicated persons who recognized the importance of music to people’s lives, has grown to an organization that brings exceptional musicians to the Historic Old San Ysidro Church where the audience is no longer just neighbors. Local residents and guests from the middle Rio Grande Valley share the evening with visitors from other states and further abroad.

The hope of the CCAC has been that everyone could enjoy a sampling of the world’s finest musical performances in a stunning New Mexican location at affordable prices. Still an all-volunteer group of involved members, we are pleased to see that dream continuing to grow and flourish in such a wonderful way.
