Grupo Fantasma is entering its 19th year as a band, but for a large portion of that time, they’ve been unfairly pegged as a Latin band. In reality, that’s only one part of the story. So on their new album, they took things to the next level.
American Music: Volume VII is an excellent representation of what they’re really about: Mixing multiple styles and sounds, a wide range of influences…mixing roots. This is the approach that makes their sound consistently universal, and always outstanding.
Better yet, you need to experience it live. Join Grupo Fantasma for their big album release party tonight at the Mohawk, 912 Red River, featuring performances by Tomar and The FCs, and Bourgeois Mystics. Doors 8 p.m. If it hasn’t sold out yet, it may well be sold out very soon. Recommended.
