Later that day join MSS at its Fun Night from 7:30 to 11 p.m. in Scooter’s. Enjoy light refreshments and participate in the MSS Trivia Challenge for prizes, hear live music by emcee, singer and songwriter Maria Isa, and close the evening with dancing to music by DJ Enferno.

Influenced by the traditional Afro-Boricua ritmos of bomba and plena, along with soul and funk of Motown and Fania’s fusion of salsa and bugaloo, Isa plants an organic blend of call and response with lyrical “Spanglish” rhymes through the various drumbeats and snares of hip-hop, reggae, dancehall and reggaeton.

For more information contact Multicultural Student Services, (651) 962-6460, or view the Multicultural Services’ Web site. The event is sponsored by Multicultural Student Services with support from STAR (St. Thomas Activities and Recreation).
