About El Gran Mitote:
El Gran Mitote is part of a trend of Latin American rock bands that have sprung up recently in Boston and the surrounding areas. El Gran Mitote is the heir of a Latin American rock tradition that begins with groups such as the Mexican Maldita Vecindad and El Tri, the Chilean Los Fabulosos Cadillac and the Colombian Aterciopelados. This is urban rock, which lyrics express as diverse subjects as love and loss to social discontentment, drug abuse and police brutality. Lucho Jara, Guillermo Ortiz, Kevin Guerrero and Juan Pedraza are the talented members of this rock band that explores and combines the differences and similarities of rock with Latin American folk music.

About VROCC:
As a Latin American cultural center, VROCC seeks to both hold space for Latinos to engage in cultural activities and share space with people from other cultural groups who wish to learn about Latino cultures. We build social capital by supporting local professional talent providing a platform to showcase their work and by creating job opportunities for youth in the traditional arts and culture fields as well as supporting aspiring artists and arts entrepreneurs in the city. All are welcome to participate in the programs and celebrate in community.

Acerca de El Gran Mitote:

Lucho Jara, Guillermo Ortiz, Kevin Guerrero y Juan Pedraza son los talentosos integrantes de esta banda de rock que explora y combina las diferencias y similitudes del rock con la música folclórica Latinoamericana. El Gran Mitote forma parte de una tendencia de bandas de rock latinoamericanas que han surgido recientemente en Boston y sus alrededores. El Gran Mitote es heredero de una tradición de rock latinoamericano que comienza con grupos como los mexicanos Maldita Vecindad y El Tri, el chileno Los Fabulosos Cadillac y el colombiano Aterciopelados. Se trata de un rock urbano, cuyas letras expresan temas tan diversos como el amor y la pérdida hasta el descontento social, el abuso de drogas y la brutalidad policial.

Acerca de VROCC:
En su función de centro cultural latinoamericano, VROCC busca, tanto proveer un espacio para que los latinos se involucren en actividades culturales como compartir un espacio con personas de otros grupos culturales que deseen aprender acerca de las culturas latinas. Construímos capital social al apoyar talentos profesionales locales proveyendo una plataforma en la cual puedan mostrar su trabajo y creando oportunidades de empleo para los jóvenes en las artes tradicionales y cultura, así como apoyando a artistas aspirantes y empresarios de las artes en la ciudad.
