Fun Fun Fun Fest spotlight: Ocote Soul Sounds

Ocote Soul Sounds is an Austin based Latin fusion band lead by talented Adrian Quesada (Brownout, Grupo Fantasma) and Martin Perna (Antibalas). Their music blends Afrobeat, soul, jazz and traditional Latin rhythms. Their latest release, Taurus, is available locally at Waterloo Records and digitally on iTunes. We first encountered them at Pachanga Fest in 2009 (interview here) and have been hooked ever since. Catch Ocote Soul Sounds at Fun Fun Fun Fest on Friday, November 4, on the orange stage at 3:05pm.

The following video is a medley of songs that includes “Look Sharp,” “Tu Fin, Mi Comienzo” and “El Pescador” to name a few. The video is about 30 minutes long, so buckle in and prepare to get a great sense of what Ocote’s live show is like.


The 6th annual Fun Fun Fun Fest will be held at Auditorium Shores on November 4-6. Purchase tickets online here.
