Fusing Colombian funk and Caribe soul, Superfónicos is a fruitful source of lush and local latin licks. Bound together by an advocacy for peace and unity through therapeutic dance, Superfónicos was founded in 2014 between Nico Sanchez (bass) and Erick Bohorquez (guitar) over their shared passion for Afro-Colombian rhythms. Joined by Andres Villegas (guitar), Daniel Sanchez (percussion) and eventually Jaime Ospina (vocals), Superfónicos’ pairing with famed Austin producer Adrian Quesada gave birth to the group’s infectious Latin sound riddled with Caribbean textures.
Superfónicos debut album is set for release later on this year, but listeners can tide themselves over with “Rio Negro”, a track that showcases the group’s rich timbres and their firm belief in unity across cultures.
Catch the heat with Superfónicos for Wine Down at 3Ten on Wednesday, June 28th!
