You can’t enjoy Superfónicos without dancing. Get ready.
At the heart of their music, Superfónicos finds inspiration in Indigenous and African sounds rooted in Columbia. Call it Columbian funk, or Caribe soul…it’s all that and more. The band was born from the alchemy of late night jam sessions, which quickly evolved into the solid alt.-Latinx/funk/musica tropicale experience it is today. Core founders bassist Nicolás Sanchez, guitarists Erick Bohorquez and Andres Villegas, and percussionist Daniel Sanchez started the band as a way of honoring their Columbian heritage; gaitero and vocalist Jaime Ospina met the band after relocating from Colombia to Austin in 2016, and soon trombonist Zumbi Richards, keyboardist Evan Marley Hegarty, and congas/tambor alegre/percussion maestro Nicholas Tozzo got on board.
Vamos. Catch Superfónicos at their show tonight, Thursday Feb. 8, at C-Boy’s Heart and Soul on S. Congress Ave. The music starts at 10 p.m.
