Rufina Taproom presents:
Sávila & Lone Piñon
$8 ADV / $10 at the door / 8pm doors / All Ages
Sávila is a medicinal plant that grows wild in tropical climates all over the world as well as the name of cumbia/latin/world/r&b inspired music and visual art project by guitarist Fabiola Reyna, vocalist Brisa Gonzalez and percussionist extraordinaire Papi Fimbres.
"In truth, Sávila is a band that can't be neatly packaged into a brand or traced to a curated set of influences. But rather than feeling like some inaccessible, abstract mass, their music feels like a warm embrace—the communal equivalent of self-care. Their songs unfurl in rhythmic, organic layers driven by various Latin rhythms, including cumbia and salsa. Gonzalez sings in both English and Spanish, in a voice that sounds as if she's summoning a higher consciousness, while Renya lets the cleanly picked tones of her guitar echo into the sprawling void." -Willamette Week
Lone Piñon is an acoustic conjunto from Northern New Mexico whose music celebrates the diversity and integrity of their region's cultural roots. Using violins, accordion, quinta huapangera, bajo sexto, guitarrón, tololoche and vocals in Spanish, English, Nahuatl, and P'urépecha the group has revived and updated the Chicano stringband style that once flourished in New Mexico, bringing a devoted musicianship to Northern New Mexican polkas and chotes, virtuosic Mexican huapango and son calentano, and classic borderlands conjunto.
