The Alianza Cultural Latinoamericana is a community of artists and art lovers who promote Latin American cultural expressions in Austin. The organization seeks to promote Latin American art forms to the Hispanic community in Austin and to spread this knowledge with new generations through initiatives like Café Con Letras, their monthly showcase that brings different art forms to the Latino community to maintain cultural ties alive, vibrant and constantly evolving. For almost five years, the organization has brought a variety of artists all to share their cultural knowledge and demonstrate the richness found in Latin America.
Today, Café Con Letras will host a special edition showcasing the Argentinean culture. It will include a little bit of poetry, music, folk dancing and of course, what Argentina is most known for: tango. There will also be a surprise guest on this night filled with cultural events unique to the South American country. As usual, as a way to encourage attendees to read in Spanish, there will be a book raffle.
This special homage to the rich Argentinean culture starts from 7:00-10:00 p.m. at Ruta Maya located at 3601 S. Congress Ave. Admission is $5 and free for under 18. Parking is free.
