Join us at the Hanover Farmer's Market for a concert by the Latin dance band Mal Maiz.

The exuberant traditions of Afro-Caribbean rhythms woven with Central American tunes are the signature sounds for the Latin dance band Mal Maiz. A native of Costa Rica, band frontman Brujo Maiz Vargas Sandoval, blends traditional Cumbia, Latin, and Reggae motifs into a tapestry of world music with a contemporary and energetic twist.  

This concert, which is free and open to the public, will take place from 5:30-7:00 at the Hanover Farmer's Market on the grounds of Richmond Middle School.  Seating is open; bring your own blankets or lawn chairs.

This is the first of two concerts sponsored by the Howe Library this summer.  A full list of Howe-sponsored market events can be found here:  Email Jared Jenisch at for more information.  

Currently based in Burlington, Mal Maiz came to the forefront of the east coast music scene by gaining acclaim at VPR’s Live From the Fort’s New Voices Project. Mal Maiz brings boundless energy and undeniably unique sound to the stage.
