Malamanya is no garden-variety salsa band. Drawing on Cuban son and other traditional folk music, the group of Twin Cities natives -- singer Adriana Rimpel, bassist Tony Schreiner, trumpet player Jason Marks, percussionists Jesse Marks and Luis Ortega and guitarist Trevor May -- has fashioned an acoustic sound that creates a timeless connection and joyous blues that's as old as the working class itself.

Malamanya are back! Taking the chill out of a December evening with the sheer warmth and vitality of their music-making, Malamanya will have you up on your feet and moving to the music all night long, with a repertoire that samples broadly across Afro-Caribbean traditions. 

Alma Andina opens, and DJ Radio Pocho will keep the music coming before and between sets.
