Southwestern Cumbia Band brings Sonoran sound to Brattleboro
Tucson-Based Cumbia group, Vox Urbana, will showcase their unique Latin sound at Brattleboro's 118 Elliot, 118 Elliot St., Brattleboro on Sunday, 8 to 10 p.m.
Vox Urbana is a six -piece band that combines Latin-based sounds with stories and experiences that occur in the Arizona/Sonora border region. The bi-national band is based in Tucson, Az. and has been creatively narrating stories of the border community since 2010. The band's original repertoire breaks any language barrier via its unrelenting danceable grooves.
Vox Urbana's instrumentation consists of guitar, keyboard, sax, trombone, bass guitar, congas, and drums. As a collective composing body, Vox Urbana continuously aims to learn and expand its musical influences. Among the musical styles found in the band's sound and identity is a meztizaje of ethnic sounds.
There is a suggested donation of $5. For information on the band visit voxurbantucson.com.
