Underground Horns & Yotoco Holiday Party



“We are cooking audio gumbo…our special recipe includes some funk, jazz, hip hop mixed with brass band traditions spiced up with African and other world rhythms… MUSIC FOR THE PEOPLE!"
Underground Horns is a Brooklyn based brass band playing Afro Funk Latin New Orleans grooves and beyond. AllAboutJazz called their 2009 debut record FUNK MONK "kick-ass dance music…that brushes up against psychedelia…with shots of funky brass juice."
Their second album BIG BEAT (2010) was reviewed by Ken Waxman in The New York Jazz Record calling them "an unapologetic party band with brains...with tonal inflections from the Big Easy, central Africa, the Maghreb and the Baltic states" and on their third record ALMOST BLUE (2014) they were "expanding the sonic range while never leaving the groove behind." (Sam Spokony, The Villager)
Underground Horns performed internationally in Brazil, Egypt and Germany, stateside at the Lowdown Hudson Blues Festival, NYC Winter Jazz Festival, Dizzy's (Jazz at Lincoln Center) and various Jam Band Festivals, sharing the bill with Rebirth Brass Band, Big Sam's Funky Nation and B.B. King.
In the big city they make people dance in subway stations, parks and at their club dates at nublu, the Blue Note and Brooklyn Bowl, among others. They also have been playing as a marching band, namely at the spectacular NYC Village Halloween Parade.




Yotoco



Yotoco’s music defies categorization.  It isn’t salsa, son, cumbia, merengue or psychedelic rock; it isn’t rumba, funk, bomba or plena. It draws from all of those traditions, transcends them, and creates something unique, trippy, and extremely danceable. Sebastian Lopez and Natalia Perez’s vocals are authentic and rootsy. Gabo Tomassini’s conga playing is crisp and well-versed in afrolatin music.  Evan Garfield knows exactly when to be understated on the drums, and when to bring the funk.  Natalia Perez’s guacharaca completes a rich percussion section, and combined with Sebastian’s strong bass, they keep the group grounded in contagious rhythms.  To top things off, Crow  takes us on a musical vision quest of masterly guitar-playing.  Occasionally, Crow also takes on bass duties, and we are treated to Sebastian’s accordion, which evokes a traditional parranda in some small town in Colombia, like the town of Yotoco in Valle del Cauca, for which the group is named.  Yotoco’s music may be hard to classify- but it is very easy to party to.
