Pachanga Society will perform at the Red Willow Arts Coalition free concert on Thursday, August 21 at 7 p.m. on the lawn at the Douglas County Courthouse in Alexandria.

Pachanga Society combines the music of Cuban Cabildos, Brazilian Samba and Spanish Charangas with danceable rhythms from all over the globe. The original group of four or five stage members has grown to eight or nine.

Audience members are encouraged to dance along or play the percussion instruments that the group distributes. The participatory nature of the Pachanga experience is a key part of its energy.

Attendees are encouraged to bring lawn chairs or blankets. In the event of inclement weather, listen to KXRA 1490 AM for cancellation information.

The Red Willow Arts Coalition is a nonprofit organization with a mission to provide the community with access to more musical experiences.

These activities are funded in part by a grant from the Lake Region Arts Council with McKnight Foundation funding.

The series sponsors are Anderson Funeral Home and Elden’s Fresh Foods. The nightly sponsor is Bursch Travel.
