Henderson’s August Nights Latin Concert Series continues with QUITAPENAS,  one word – all caps, four syllables – all claps. The name means “to remove worries.” Everybody has a “pena,” and the mission of QUITAPENAS is simple: to make audiences dance and leave without a worry. This tropical Afro-Latin combo was born in California and borrows aesthetics from the 60s, 70s and 80s.  The band, made up of first-generation sons of immigrant parents from Guatemala and Mexico, was formed around a shared love of dance rhythms from the Tropical Afro Latin diaspora.
