Quitapenas LIVE at the 2023 International Festival of Arts & Ideas

Leave your troubles behind with the help of this tropical Afro-Latin combo whose name literally means “to remove worries.” Their rhythmic songs remix the sounds of the 60s, 70s and 80s as they transport you to magical evenings in Angola, Peru, Colombia, Brazil and beyond. Using the healing mix of guitar, saxophone, keyboards, bass and lot of contagious percussion, these modern- day curanderos will keep you moving to the music all throughout their performance.

This full-length concert was recorded on June 11, 2023 on the Alexander Clark Stage on the New Haven Green.
