Sept 6 - Bang on a Can at the Noguchi: Balún

Balún is a self-proclaimed "dreambow" quartet whose members hail from Puerto Rico. Though currently residing in New York City, Island culture remains the cornerstone of their forward-thinking, malleable sound. Balún incorporates Caribbean rhythms, old school dembow, glitchy IDM and dreamy dance pop into tunes that are slick and modern but firmly rooted in the traditional sounds of their homeland. balunonline.com

This performance at the Noguchi Museum is free as part of Free First Friday.
