Noche de Música Latinx: Savila, Orquestra Pacifico Tropical, Taller De Son Jarocho, UO Fandangueros

November 17, 2017 - 8:00pm

On Friday, November 17, the Community Center for Performing Arts proudly welcomes SavilaOrquestra Pacifico TropicalTaller De Son Jarocho, and UO Fandangueros to the historic WOW Hall in Eugene for Noche de Música Latinx! 

The night will start off with a collaboration set between Eugene musicians and fandango dancers: UO Fandangueros and Taller De Son Jarocho. 

Next up will be amazing eleven piece Portland based psych-Cumbia band Orquestra Pacifico Tropical. 

Cumbia is the music of the southern American hemisphere. Orquestra Pacifico Tropical have taken this frenetic, addictive rhythm and accomplished what musicians across time and space have always done -- bringing dancing crowds into a frenzy.  To hear the ecstatic thump, rumble and sheer brilliance of the racing rhythms of coastal Columbia side by side with the psychedelic guitar explorations of the Peruvian rain forest is to travel across continents and through time with Orquestra Pacifico Tropical as the guide.

Armed with an arsenal of percussion, woodwinds, horns, accordion and guitars, these eleven friends have come together in the spirit of capturing and breathing new life into this most essential of music – Cumbia – the music of the people.

Featuring members of Sun Angle, Máscaras, Deer or the Doe, O Bruxo, Bitch'n, &&&, Eagle Sun King, Point Juncture WA, Modernstate, Jippedo and Quiet Countries, Orquestra Pacifico Tropical's wall of sound is dedicated to expanding the music of Central and South America to the people and dance floors of the Pacific Northwest.

Savila 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.
