Local libraries are inviting their communities to performances by Mestifonía, a Minnesota-based band that blends Colombian, Bolivian, and American talent in a unique setlist of styles from the Iberian Peninsula and South America, bringing to life the sounds of fado, flamenco, cueca, tango, bolero and more.

    Within the “Latin-music” field, Mestifonía is recognized for its vibrant and uncommon instrumentation and for creating layers of timbre and cultural fusion.

    These performances are offered free of charge thanks to funding from the Minnesota Legacy Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.

    Performances are scheduled as follows:

    • Fair Meadow Nursing Home, 300 Garfield Ave SE, Fertile, MN - Wednesday, October 2 at 1:30 pm

    • Crookston Public Library - Wednesday, October 2 at 6:00 pm

    • Mahnomen Public Library - Thursday, October 3 at 1:30 pm

    • Detroit Lakes Public Library - Thursday, October 3 at 7:00 pm
