August 14, 2019, Wednesday - Mill City Live at Mill City Museum

Time: 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Location: Mill City Museum, 704 S 2nd Street

Mill City Live: Charanga Tropical

On Aug. 14, enjoy music from Charanga Tropical. Charanga Tropical performs as a "charanga," an instrumentation that combines violins, flute, vocals, and full Latin rhythm section that dates back to the roots of Cuban music. Charanga’s specialty is danzón, a style that was greatly influenced by French refugees who came to Cuba in the early 19th century. As the cultures merged, danzón came into being in the late 1800s and became very popular in Cuba.

Danzón mixes the serious sophistication of classical music with the syncopation of Cuban rhythms. It is a complex sound, rich in harmony, fantastic for listening and superb for dancing. In 2015, the Minneapolis-based Latin band became the first American group ever to be invited to perform at Cuba's International Danzón Festival.

Food and drink will be available for purchase from D'Amico. Tickets include admission to the museum from 4 to 9 pm.

Mill City Live is made possible by presenting sponsor, General Mills, and media partner, City Pages.
