The Big Maracas


  • Creaux 310 West Short Street Lexington, KY, 40507 United States (map)

Local Latino rhythms fronted by Venezuelan ex-patriot Enrique Gonzales. The Maracas delve into many branches of Latin and Tropical music, being particularly fond of the great Cuban traditions and Brazilian samba, but thats only the beginning. A few of the styles youll hear from the Big Maracas include Son, Mambo, Cha-cha-cha, Rumba, Salsa, Cumbia, Boogaloo, Calypso, Plena, Forro, Tango, and many others, sometimes including Latin Rock, or other as-of-yet uninvented sub-genres.
