Groupo La Séptima Alianza
July 24, 2019
The music of Groupo La Séptima Alianza is the final FREE concert being presented in Monroe Arts Center's Summer of Music concert series.
Enjoy the sound of Madison’s own Groupo La Séptima Alianza. Their music is characterized by its fresh and modern take on Latin tropical and regional Mexican music. They play a variety of music such as Cumbia (folkloric rhythm and dance from Colombia), Norteña (Mexican music from Northern Mexico), Quebradita (a Mexican dancing and music style), and Zapateada (dance styles of Mexico, with a lively rhythm punctuated by the striking of the dancer's shoes). Omar Miranda, the group’s director, remarks, “We do not want to focus on just one kind of music, because our Latino community is very diverse in musical tastes.”
It was in 2016 that this group of friends decided they wanted to form a band. The current band members are Antonio Flores (vocals), Juan Damaso (Guiro percussion), Joaquín (drums, vocal), Francisco Xelhua (bass guitar), Jorge Luis Rios (keyboard, vocals), and Omar Miranda (percussion).
In the event of inclement weather, concerts will be presented in MAC's Gunderson Stiles Concert Hall.
