Entangados plays free outdoor concert in Cumberland Thursday

This Thursday is the fifth concert in the new Elevate Summer Concert Series taking place each and every Thursday night right in the heart of the Village of Cumberland.

And this week is shaping up to be a wildly fun ride with musical guests Entangados.

Entangados (una banda de paya S.O.S.) is a band of musicians and actors who perform as clowns. Combining theatre with genres such as rock, cuarteto, música balkánica, reggae, salsa, Balkan folk music, cumbia, ska, folklore, and tango, En-tangados emanate fun and joy from the stage with the power of 100 suns.

With guitars, horns and accordions, the band builds a wall of sound that act as powerful catalysts to the biggest dance parties. In the midst of all this music, the group employs actors to help create a carnival atmosphere that will captivate and excite audience members of all ages. Each show is a fiesta musical full of dancing, humour, happiness and energy.

This week is gearing up to be the liveliest of the concert series nights yet.

Free family fun from 7-9:30 p.m.

Pack a picnic, lay down a blanket and get ready for a festive festival vibe this Thursday.

The Elevate Summer Concert Series is dedicated to bringing barrier free, family friendly, diversity positive, street level culture and music to the community of Cumberland (and their visiting friends and neighbours). The series is presented by Elevate in partnership with Cumberland Village Works, the Waverley Hotel, Riders Pizza and the Village of Cumberland.
