Summer Nights Concert: Baracutanga

Baracutanga is an African voicing that means "people dancing". Because of its onomatopoeic sound, it's a reminder of the percussive instruments that were dispersed throughout the Americas by African diaspora that has vitally nurtured our native cultures. Baracutanga is a group of experienced musicians of diverse backgrounds and origins that proposes to build bridges between the south and the north, overcoming the barriers of discrimination. The south conjugates the past and the future and it is there where we find our roots as a key to survive in a modern world. Our music carries a message of reflection to ignite a positive change of attitudes; which must begin within us and with the acknowledgement of cultural pluralism. During the concert, stroll the grounds, enjoy a magic show and check out the Garden's model train and the BUGarium. The Heritage Farm is open from 6pm-8pm. The Aquarium also is open during concert.
