Enjoy an evening of Latin folk fusion with Son Monarcas!

The Butterworth Center, in collaboration with Quad City Arts’ Visiting Artist Series, is hosting Chicago-based ensemble Son Monarcas, led by Mercedes Inez Martinez and Irekani Ferreyra. According to a release,

Their music takes audiences on a lively musical migration from the USA to Latin America with a repertoire that fuses indie soul and traditional son and cumbia stylings. Their original compositions include influences of cumbia, samba, jazz and experimental music in both English and Spanish. Well-versed in the Afro-Mestizo genres of folk music from Latin America, they blend traditional and contemporary genres in arrangements of son through a variety of rhythms and sounds.
