It was in November of 2012 when Lords of Wax champion and Peligrosa member Chorizo Funk teamed up with with percussionist Rudy Rexx to bring the people Clásico. Rexx and Chorizo Funk wanted to bring more “umph” to the standard live DJ set in Austin with the percussion accompanyment to the DJ tracks. Rexx, a longtime percussionist, has played with numerous groups including Grupo Fantasma, Brownout, Maneja Beto and Vallejo to name a few.
“The idea is for me to play a variety of musical genres (cumbia, salsa, boogaloo, guaguanco, etc) born out of the African diaspora in Latin America with the added touch of live percussion.” said Chorizo Funk.
Tonight at Takoba both Rudy Rexx and Chorizo Funk will be doing their Clásico set from 9 p.m. to midnight. Takoba is located at 1411 E. 7th St. No cover. All ages welcome. Visit the Facebook event page here.
