El Tule is pure sunshine; a product of latin dance rhythms and positive expression. The band blends all of the zeal and enthusiasm of cumbia, salsa, merengue, reggae, and psychedelic rock. The importance of dance and movement radiates throughout the group’s music both lyrically and rhythmically. As soon as the music hits the ears, the body is sure to follow suit. El Tule will have you strutting down the street, grooving at your best friend’s wedding, and dancing while you do the dishes. For fans of: Golden Dawn Arkestra.
We’re big fans of El Tule here at KUTX. In fact, we’ve had them in twice this week! Art Levy has singer and guitarist John Dell and conga player Matt “Matteo” Turner guest DJ during last week’s My KUTX and today we had the band visit Studio1A this week to play some tracks off their fourth studio album Cuatro. Listen to the live session down below. If you like what you hear, they’re playing Austin 3ten tonight.
