Kapanga (El Teatro Flores, Ave. Rivadavia 7800. www.elteatroonline.com.ar). 7pm. Tickets from Full Ticket. From $100.
“Cuarteto” and rock’n’roll band Kapakanga celebrate their 18th anniversary with a live show at an emblematic music venue. Kapanga was formed by Martín “Mono” Fabio and Marcelo “Balde” Spósito as Kapanga y sus Yacarés in 1989, thus honouring Kapanga the Missionary, a character from the spoof catch show Titanes en el ring.
During that phase they played covers of La Mona Jiménez’s songs at private events. The band split a few years later and reunited in 1995, shortening their name to Kapanga.
The definitive lineup is made up of ‘Mono‘ Fabio (vocals), ‘Balde‘ Spósito (bass and backup vocals), ‘Maikel‘ De Luna Campos (guitar and backup vocals), Claudio Maffia (drums and backup vocals) and Mariano ‘Príncipe‘ Arjones (keyboards).
