Orishas are a Cuban hip hop group from Havana, Cuba, founded in 1999. The group was first called "Amenaza", "threat" or "menace" in Spanish, and appealed to the Cuban youth who were hungry for African-American culture consisting of hip hop and rap. Orishas delved into a realm of music that created a black identity to which some among the younger generations could relate.

One of the major bands in Brazilian rock music, Legiao Urbana was formed in the capitol Brasilia in 1982, the members Renato Russo (vocals), Dado Villa-Lobos (guitar), and Marcelo Bonfá were heavily influenced by British bands of the time like The Smiths, The Cure, The Clash and Joy Division. They led a wave of original rock from Brasilia alongside other bands like Paralamas do Successo and Plebe Rude, which took the nation by storm and overshadowed the traditional music cities like São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro. With Russo’s soulful lyrics in ballads, the band’s songs became the soundtrack for an entire generation. After Renato Russo's passing in 1996 of AIDS related illness, the band dissolved. Now, 30 years after the release of their historic debut album, Villa-Lobos and Bonfá have reunited along with guest musicians to perform the iconic songs of Legião Urbana. Tickets are $40+
