La Cuneta Son Machin

The Marjorie Luke Theatre and UCSB Arts & Lectures present this FREE family show as part of the Viva el Arte SB concert series. Nicaragua’s first artists to be nominated for a Grammy, LA CUNETA SON MACHIN has created a unique style based on popular Nicaraguan folkórico, infused with rock, marimba, cumbia and ska. Friends and cousins, La Cuneta came together in 2009 when the musicians were inspired to join Managua’s annual Santo Domingo Festival parade as it passed by in the street, leading to the name – “la Cuneta,” meaning “the sidewalk,” and “son machin,” a play on the English words “sound machine.” Their fourth album, Cañambuco, was released electronically in May 2017.
