KICK OFF YOUR NEW YEAR RIGHT!
Austin’s Funk Familia, Ex Romantika, plus cumbia-wreckers, HueRTa CuLTuRe, and (brand new to Austin) Eliud y Su Orquesta Rumba Buena!
9:30-10:30 HueRTa CuLTuRe
11-12 Ex Romantika
12:30-1:45 Eliud y Su Orquesta Rumba Buena
*HueRTa CuLTuRe, mixes cumbia, blues, rock, balkan, ska, reggae, and hip-hop influences to create a sound that has been dubbed ‘psichocumbia’… Songs in English, Spanish, and #Quechua (an indigenous language of Bolivia) sometimes featuring #Zampoña (Andean panpipes).
*Ex Romantika will make you dance! Funk, Latin Jazz, and Cumbia make up the meat of the band’s distinctive sound – chock-full of burnin’ horn solos and spiced with touches of Big Band, Rock, and the occasional Carlos Santana guitar scream….
*Eliud y Su Orkestra Rumba Buena play a blend of salsa, cumbia tropical, vallenato, danzon, and bolero. Eliud is a Mexican-American singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, producer, and instructor.
