Malamanya is a Twin Cities-based band known for their vintage Afro-Latin music. The group is comprised of musicians who share a mutual respect and enthusiasm for traditional rhythms and melodies from Cuba and Latin America. The group travels internationally, most recently on a well-received trip to Panama. Latin music and dance enthusiasts flock to their shows when they perform in Minnesota at such venues as Cedar Cultural Center, Orchestra Hall, Dakota Jazz Club, and First Avenue. Malamanya’s style is vintage Afro-Latin and their sound is classic. Their onstage energy and compositions reflect the communal, complex, and celebratory spirit prevalent in Afro-Latin music. Escape the cold of February with this hot music!

Ring of Kerry is a bursting-with-energy Irish music group that captures the hearts of listeners. The group takes its name from a beautiful craggy drive in southwestern County Kerry, Ireland. Its Celtic music, however, is played with a heart much closer to its American home. All five of its engaging musicians sing and play several instruments.  From the thundering sound of the bodhrán to the sparkle of the hammered dulcimer, from the lilt and rhythm of fiddle and guitar to the haunting wails of the flute and pennywhistles, the band has developed a blend that is animated, ruggedly beautiful, and fun. For this special show, Ring of Kerry is joined by a pair of Irish dancers. Start your St. Patrick’s Day weekend early with this Thursday evening concert!
