Thursday, July 3, Austin-based world music website World Beat Online will be presenting their second installment of their live music series HACE CALOR! Latin Dance Party at One-2-One Bar. The series aims to offer attendees a diverse sample of the Latin music scene Austin has to offer. The best part of it all is you are probably off from Work on Friday, so why not get the weekend started early con on poco sabor ?
El Tule is the night’s headliner. The group is a longtime staple in the Latin music community in Austin. Their lyrics are about history, art and culture often focus on legends and tales of the mystical. Their music blends elements of salsa, merengue, cumbia and reggae set to Spanish lyrics. El Tule are currently performing in support of their latest release, Volumen III.
The DJ on the night’s showcase is none other than DJ Orión, the leader and founding member of popular Austin-based Latin DJ collective Peligrosa. A jack of all trades, Orión Garcia seems to do it all. He holds down a Saturday residency at The Volstead, handles all things business for Peligrosa and even provides visuals for live music events and parties that aren’t his. Best of all, he throws down the best of electro-cumbia, dembow, moombahton, hip-hop, salsa and more.
Cuchillo e’ Palo rounds out the night’s bill. The ensemble is led by the talented Luis “Angel” Ibañez. Cuchillo e’ Palo blends elements Cuban, South American, and the diverse musical traditions of Mexico. “Angel” is an extremely seasoned guitarist who is known for entertaining crowds with his refined vocal ability.
One-2-One Bar is located at 1509 S. Lamar Blvd. Doors open at 6 p.m. Music starts at 7 p.m. 21+ are welcome. $7 cover. Visit the Facebook event page here.
