As part of KUTX‘s #LoveAustinMusicMonth celebrations, the Austin Music Minute highlights a local artist of international standing.
If you’ve ever indulged in the jams of Os Alquimistas, Suns of Orpheus or the Jorge Ben/Gilberto Gil/Tropa Maldita-era vibed Macaxiera Funk, then you must know Frederico Geib. The songwriter makes his official solo debut as Frederico7 with a new LP, Exótico Americano, a cross-section of Pan American soul and a universal message of unity.
Dig the massive album release party happening tonight at Empire Control Room, 606 E. 7th St. This is one huge blowout with Kiko Villamizar, Cilantro Boombox, Manolo Black, and Maracatú Texas. Doors open at 8 p.m., and the music starts at 9 p.m. Parabéns, Frederico! Recommended.
