Hycroft Havana Night

August 23, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm


Back by popular demand, we’re Havana another good time at Hycroft! Grab your dancing shoes and get ready to turn up the heat at our end of summer blowout featuring Cuban inspired cocktails, buffet dinner, and the sounds of hard hitting Afro-Caribbean band Kutapira.

Kutapira Bio

What started thirteen years ago as a youth world music initiative has metamorphosized into the crowd-pleasing percussion explosion known today as Kutapira! The name Kutapira means “sweetness” in the Shona language of Zimbabwe, a fitting title for a band that plays a fusion of Zimbabwean marimba with West African and Afro-Cuban percussion and more. This highly stylized marimba fusion consists of some contemporary Zimbabwean tunes but the majority of the music is composed and arranged by Kutapira and inspired by genres like Reggae, Funk, Latin Jazz, Samba, Cumbia, Disco and Hip Hop. For years they performed exclusively as a mallet swinging, skin-slapping quintet but now, in their latest evolutionary form, feature guitar, horns and vocals.
