Levitt on the Lawn: La Misa Negra
“La Misa Negra has been upending the Latin music genre, infusing tradition with outside musical influences…and contemporary subject matter.”
—The San Francisco Chronicle
With an electrifying blend of 1950s- and 60s-style cumbia and high-energy, Afro-Colombian dance music, this Oakland-based Latinx octet’s performances are suffused with horns, accordion, and percussive panache. Swinging from sensually hypnotic to infectiously danceable tunes, La Misa Negra dares its audience to be anything than energized and on its feet!
