On Friday, Aug. 16, popular 6th Street live music venue Flamingo Cantina will host the “Plethora of Sounds” Latin music showcase featuring the “barrio big band” from San Antonio, Bombasta. Rounding out the bill will be Austin-based singer-songwriter Gina Chavez and reggae-cumbia specialists El Tule.
Bombasta is no stranger to Austin. The Alamo City’s answer to Ozomatli is one of the more popular Latin fusion bands in Texas. With cumbia at their core, the group incorporates elements of hip-hop, funk, reggae and salsa into their music. It is a sound that very much reflects the city where they are from.
Flamingo Cantina is located at 515 E. 6th Street. Doors open at 9 p.m. 21+ are welcome. $5 cover. Visit the Facebook event page here. To keep up with Latino entertainment in Austin, sign up for our mailing list below.
