Event Description:
QUITAPENAS, one word – all caps, four syllables – all claps, gives you a taste of their rhythmic contagion. This tropical Afro-Latin combo was born under the warm California sun in 2011. They borrow aesthetics from the radical 60s, 70s and 80s. Each song echoes a remix of history and invites one to engage in the liberating evenings of Angola, Peru, Colombia, Brazil and beyond. The name means “to remove worries.” Everybody has a “pena” and the mission of QUITAPENAS is simple: to make you dance and leave you worriless. Made up of first-generation sons of immigrant parents from Guatemala and Mexico, this high-energy band serves up plenty of fun onstage. Their instrumental compositions are complex yet familiar and pay tribute to a variety of indigenous cultures. “A hot dance party from start to finish, with a guitar virtuoso, harmonized chants and a very sunny sound…” – Rock NYC
