ON­STAGE THIS WEEK

Pasatiempo - - Onstage This Week -

Pato Ban­ton has a spe­cial spot in Santa Fe’s nightlife his­tory. In 2009, the U.K. reg­gae/toast­ing le­gend be­came the first in­ter­na­tion­ally known artist to hit the stage at

Co­razón night­club (401 S. Guadalupe St., 983-4559), which opened that year. Ban­ton re­turns to the ’Zón this week­end. Serv­ing up irie vibes with a de­cid­edly min­is­te­rial bent, Ban­ton and his Now Gen­er­a­tion band are on a tour of the U.S. to de­liver a mes­sage of spir­i­tual awak­en­ing and pos­i­tiv­ity. Catch the charis­matic Ban­ton at 9 p.m. Satur­day, April 16, at Co­razón. Tick­ets for the 21-an­dover show are $12 in ad­vance at www. cora­zon­santafe.com, $15 at the door. Los Muñe­quitos de Matan­zas is an Afro-Cuban drum­ming and rumba group that has been in ex­is­tence for more than half a cen­tury. Much of its mu­sic keeps alive the West African ori­gins of Cuban mu­sic, in­cor­po­rat­ing Yoruba rhythms from Nige­ria and sa­cred songs from the re­li­gion of San­te­ria. This is a rare U.S. ap­pear­ance, as many Cuban arts groups have strug­gled to gain visas in the post-Sept. 11 era. The per­for­mance takes place at the Len­sic Per­form­ing Arts Cen­ter (211 W. San Fran­cisco St.) at 7 p.m. on Tues­day, April 19. Tick­ets are $20 to $40 and can be pur­chased by call­ing 988-1234 or vis­it­ing www.tick­etssantafe.org. When Fran­cis Poulenc wrote his Sex­tet for Piano and Winds in the early 1930s, he was still kick­ing high in his Les six mode, steeped in Stravin­sky and pun­gent Gauloises. Wrote one critic fol­low­ing its pre­miere, “With Poulenc, all of France comes out of the win­dows he opens.” The sex­tet joins Mozart’s Piano and Winds Quin­tet and pieces by Ibert and Pi­az­zolla in this wind-cen­tered pro­gram, Wind Tan­gos, part of the newly founded se­ries at the Im­mac­u­late Heart of Mary

Re­treat and Con­fer­ence Cen­ter (50 Mount Carmel Road), at 5:30 p.m. on Sun­day, April 17. For tick­ets ($20, dis­counts avail­able for stu­dents, se­niors, and par­ents with chil­dren), call 474-4513 or visit www.ihm­re­treat.com. In 1981, REO Speed­wagon’s ninth stu­dio al­bum, Hi In­fi­delity, spent 15 weeks at the tippy-top of the U.S. Bill­board 200 chart. With a racy cover (for the time, any­way) and mega hits like “Keep On Lovin’ You” and “Take It on the Run,” the al­bum has sold more than 10 mil­lion copies since its re­lease. Ten more of REO Speed­wagon’s 16 stu­dio al­bums, which reach back to a self-ti­tled de­but in 1971, have charted in the Top 200, and the band con­tin­ues to draw de­voted au­di­ences when on tour. Re­visit some of clas­sic rock’s most rec­og­niz­able tunes when REO Speed­wagon hits the

Tewa Ball­room at Buf­falo Thun­der Re­sort & Casino (30 Buf­falo Thun­der Trail, ad­ja­cent to Po­joaque Pueblo, 12 miles north of down­town Santa Fe off U.S. 84/285) at 8 p.m. Fri­day, April 15. Tick­ets, $29 to $59, are avail­able at the re­sort’s box of­fice, by call­ing 800-905-3315, and on­line at www.tick­ets.com.
