We have the return of Congo Sanchez and his group! Congo is the favored sideman and producer for dance bands and world music ensembles alike. His contributions to The Empresarios Bestia EP, Funk Ark's From the Rooftops and Thievery Corporation's Culture of Fear stand out with distinct character.
The evolution of this ensemble has happened naturally over the past three years. Having captivated audiences from coast to coast, and finished up their first full length record, it is clear that Congo, Haile and Flex are on the rise as a cutting edge musical force. The influences in the music are quite diverse. Congo's time as the drummer for Thievery Corporation has clearly had an affect on his ears as he continues to explore the downtempo, reggae mezcla, with an obvious hip-hop overtone to the over all musical composition. You will be taken through an array of sounds and rhythms, paying homage to the roots of music with thick layers of percussion, signature to the Congo Sanchez sound. Most importantly the band puts out a conscious message. Visit https://soundcloud.com/congosanchez or
