The Winnipeg Art Gallery’s Jazz Under the Rooftop winter concert series will heat things up September 24 with an array of Latin beats.
Local band Papa Mambo — who started out as a spirited party band — have quickly become innovators in Canada’s Latin music scene. This freewheeling octet has always emphasized great playing and inspired arrangements. Their diverse array of jazz-inflected Latin rhythms and progressive musical ideas promises a performance full of hot solos, driving ensemble work, and tempo-shifting dance-floor madness.
The show begins at 8 p.m. in the WAG’s Muriel Richardson Auditorium. Doors open at 7:30 p.m.
Tickets are $21 for WAG members, $25 for adults, and $23 for students and seniors. Each ticket includes admission to the gallery on the day of the concert.
Tickets are available at the WAG or through Ticketmaster.
