Fusing Colombian funk and Caribe soul, Austin’s 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 four years ago amongst bassist Nico Sanchez and guitarist Erick Bohorquez over their shared passion for Afro-Colombian rhythms. Performing now as a seven-piece, Superfónicos’ pairing with famed Austin producer Adrian Quesada gave birth to the group’s 2017 debut full-length album filled with infectious Latin sounds riddled with Caribbean textures.
Superfónicos stopped by KUTX’s Studio 1A last June and they’re performing this Friday at Hotel Vegas alongside Frederico7, Dub Seance and Steven Lee Moya. You can listen to Superfónicos right here on KUTX!
