@McGroarty Arts Center
This will be the kickoff event for our weekend of events that are part of the Maiden LA celebrations of art in Los Angeles. It is paid for by a generous donation from the L.A. County Arts Commission.

Bring your family!  Come and listen to the multicultural influences of local LA sounds, which include Latin Jazz, Afro-Caribbean, and Afro-Latin music.  The concert is made possible by a L.A. County Arts Commission grant.

Cuicani is a singer-songwriter?s collective comprised of five Los Angeles based musicians. The music of Cuicani features the talented mavens: Marlene Beltran Cuauhtin and Marisa Martinez, who provide rich vocals and harmonies along with Tony ?Tone-Irie? Sauza on vocals and guitar. The rhythm section is comprised of the amazingly talented Caitlin Moss on drums and John Northup on bass.

The word  ?Cuicani? is a Nahuatl word that means ?singer.? This name was chosen because it evokes the importance of exercising one?s voice, and also of giving a voice to the voiceless.   Established in 2012, Cuicani?s eclectic mix of members reflects the diversity of the city it calls home. In their years together, they have written and recorded over 15 original songs with themes such as: Environmental justice, immigration rights, and protesting police brutality.

In addition to the performance aspect of the group, Cuicani is also deeply committed to being agents of social change. All of  their members are arts educators working with youth from Kindergarten through 12th grade. They are dedicated to presenting educational workshops, drum circles, theater classes, and engaging with the community through the arts. Their goal as a collective is to help inspire and empower artists within our local communities and beyond.   www.cuicanimusic.com/our-story
