Dos Gatos will have you toe-tapping and dancing in your living room on Friday, May 8.
The local duo, made up of Felix Peralta and DB Gomez, recently filmed a concert at the National Hispanic Cultural Center as part of the “Our Fair New Mexico – Virtual Concert Series” presented by the New Mexico Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with state museums, historic sites and cultural institutions. Viewers can log on to facebook.com/newmexicohistoricsites to view the show, which begins at 7 p.m. Friday, May 8.
“We do a lot of originals, but we do some covers,” Peralta said of the concert. “It’s really eclectic, since the accordion is an all-around-the-world kind of thing, so we play like a gypsy jazz-New Orleans swing style, and then we’ll play one of our originals which is a New Mexico polka, and one of the songs called ‘Nuevo Mexico’ that I wrote. Usually a lot of people really love that song. … We’ll play two polkas, we’ll play some waltzes, New Orleans swing, and a lot of stuff is our original stuff.”
