Grupo La Septima Allianza

Bring your blanket and your picnic basket to MAC! The Monroe Arts Center is pleased to invite everyone to the new Summer of Music concert series - 4th Wednesday of May, June, and July beginning at 6:00 PM each evening on the south porch of the MAC campus. All concerts are free of charge.

Tonight's feature: the extraordinary culture and traditional music of Mexico with Grupo La Septima Allianza. Madison's own Groupo La Séptima Alianza will heat things up with their fresh and modern take on Latin tropical and regional Mexican music. They play a variety of music such as Cumbia (folkloric rhythm and dance from Colombia), Norteña (Mexican music from Northern Mexico), Quebradita (a Mexican dancing and music style), and Zapateada (dance styles of Mexico, with a lively rhythm punctuated by the striking of the dancer's shoes).

Band members are Antonio Flores (vocals), Juan Damaso (Guiro percussion), Joaquín (drums, vocal), Francisco Xelhua (bass guitar), Jorge Luis Rios (keyboard, vocals), and Omar Miranda (percussion). All concerts are rain or shine.
