Performing original as well as traditional songs, Mala Maña's sound is inspiring and unforgettable. A love for the rhythm-inspired music of Colombia's coastal people brought this vision of diversely-talented women together to offer a unique and exciting tapestry of many voices and many drums. We will be outside at Cherry Hills with food trucks in attendance!

Mala Maña is one of Burque’s premier vocal and percussion ensembles. Two upcoming library concerts feature the culturally diverse troupe. That diversity is an essential, binding force imperative to Mala Maña’s output. They're serious in their dedication to navigating the deep waters of rhythmic and vocal traditions from Africa and Latin America, melding them with contemporary expression and musicological motives. Mala Maña is: Chava, Alyson Steinman, Lydia Garcia, Carolina Acuña, Lupe Mendoza, Tatiana Schotte and Teresa Guevara. In combination, their sound is joyfully poly-rhythmic. So much so you may have a sudden urge to dance or to fall into a windy, archetype-filled trance. Mala Maña is a local cultural treasure that you can check out at two other local cultural treasures, Ernie Pyle Library (900 Girard SE) and Cherry Hills Library (6901 Barstow NE). The gig at Pyle’s old digs starts at noon on Saturday, Aug. 9, at AMP’s 100th Library Concert. Mala Maña also performs on the high desert plain at Cherry Hills, on Tuesday, Aug. 12, at 6pm. Both concerts are free.
