Congrats, we all survived another SXSW! There were some uncertainties going into the fest’s first physical iteration in two years, but it’s safe to say that the city pulled it off in a way that felt pretty dang close to the pre-pandemic days. While we take a much needed breather, KUTX will recap some of the best recordings collected at our Studio 6A showcases, starting today with airwave favorite Cimafunk.
This Cuban-born singer (and his stellar backing band) proved that they truly can move a crowd and get heads bobbing any time of day, 9AM in the case of last Wednesday. Cimafunk brought the bari sax and trombone onstage well before noon and doled out some sweet Caribbean-style caffeine with a high-energy set that included “Caramelo”!
