Grupo Fantasma launches Vanderbilt's 34th Season of Great Performances

From the Nashville Spanish Language Meetup Group:
Friday, September 19 at 7:30 pm Great Performances at Vanderbilt brings Grupo Fantasma to Vanderbilt University’s newly renovatedLangford Auditorium!

The finest, funkiest, and hardest working Latin-American orchestra brings their groove to Music City with cumbia, salsa, and pyschedelia. Grupo Fantasma’s trademark sound of 10 musicians has translated comprehensively on their new album Sonidos Gold – in an incredible and animated performance interwoven with mature and intelligent songwriting that is equally at home with the classic 1960’s Fania All-Stars sound. This band is forging a fresh new standard of excellence in Latin music.

The band’s guitarist Adrian Quesada claims the newest album, Sonidos Gold, as “the definitive Grupo Fantasma album.” The organic, live sound of the band will have the audience instantly fall in love with this timeless classic.

“This freight train of a Latin band could easily hold its own in a sweaty bandbox in the Bronx… they’ll knock you down with the grooves.” - The Village Voice

“The ten members of Grupo Fanatsma represent a new generation in Latin music." -Washington Post
