The ABGB says
Join us for a night of Latin music by way of some talented Austin groups fearlessly fusing styles and hat tipping several genres. We'll move some tables to make room for the inevitable hip swinging and dancing! Bailamos!

Cilantro Boombox 11P

Cilantro Boombox's rock and Afro-Latin based sound organically integrates elements of hip-hop, funk, electronica and traditional Venezuelan music. Danceable percussive beats, infectious bass lines and vibrant horns and synths are some of the hallmarks of Cilantro Boombox's distinctive fusion of styles.

Kiko Villamizar 10P

Kiko Villamizar was born in Miami to Colombian parents and was taken to the Andean city of Medellin, Colombia when he was small and raised there. He learned Latin American folk music through the oral tradition of his family and then went back to Miami to study jazz after high school. Then he began traveling the Americas collecting melodies and beats that he has formed into his own unique mix. A fusion of afro-colombiano with reggae, and other Latin world beats thrown in. His culture, agriculture, and life stories are put into his songs as he celebrates life and Mother Earth while lamenting the violence and inequality he has seen both in Medellin and in the United States. Kiko is not only a fusion of the Andes and the Caribbean.His songs are relevant and contemporary while strongly honoring its roots.

Este Vato 9P

Este Vato is an original eight-piece Latin-Fusion group from Austin, TX formed in 2008 by brothers Rocky & Oscar Reyna. EV‘s sound can be described as a blend of many styles from Cumbia to Rock to Hip-Hop to Reggae & everything in between. EV calls this sound “Latin-Fusion” & credits its member’s vast musical tastes, experiences & contributions as the key to its original sound.
