Members of the Bang on a Can ensemble took over the North Adams, Mass., bar the Mohawk on  July 24, stepping outside their experimental repertoire to perform Cuban jazz during an impromptu concert. Acclaimed Latin musicians Joe Gonzalez and Gregg August led the musicians through two days of instructions and rehearsals. The international troupe from Australia, Mexico, Canada, Ireland, France, China and Mexico filled the bar with instruments, danced and played until the bar closed at 2 AM.
