Grupo Fantasma is easily Austin’s go-to Latin funk jam band. One listen will reveal the variety of influences on this high-energy band, including rock, cumbia, salsa, and reggae. The band’s sound doesn’t limit itself there, however. Grupo Fantasma have an ability to adapt in collaborations with such acts as Los Lobos, KRS-One, Prince and (for those hip-hop heads who recall last year’s team up) GZA of Wu Tang Clan fame. Whatever the scenario may be, Grupo Fantasma are sure to nourish your need for funky, Latin-infused grooves!
This Grammy award-winning group just rumbled the stage at this year’s Utopia Fest and are lined up to return to Austin in November for Dia De Los Fantasmas at Empire Automotive. Grupo Fantasma also swung by KUTX this past Wednesday for a special Studio 1A performance – take a listen right here!
