Vox Urbana & Phoenix Afrobeat Orchestra

SUPPORT

Vox Urbana is a seven -piece band that combines Latin-based sounds with stories and experiences that occur in the Arizona/Sonora border region. The bi-national band is based here in Tucson and has been creatively narrating stories of the border community since 2010.  The band’s original repertoire breaks any language barrier through its 100% danceable grooves. Vox Urbana’s instrumentation consists of guitar, keyboard, sax, trombone, bass guitar, congas, and drums.  As a collective composing body, Vox Urbana continuously aims to learn and expand its musical influences. Among the musical styles found in the band’s sound and identity is a meztizaje of ethnic sounds such as Huapango (Southern Mexico), Cumbia (Colombia), Chicha (Peru), Cha-cha-cha (Cuba), along with a variety of electronic textures such as synthesizers and voice effects. Such musical recipe guarantees a high-energy performance, as well as a culturally fruitful experience to younger and older audience in the U.S./Mexico region.

PHOENIX AFROBEAT ORCHESTRA  proudly carries the musical and social torch that was first lit by the powerful duo of FELA KUTI and TONY ALLEN, original inventors of the Afrobeat sound. Led by funky heiress Camille Sledge, the 16-strong orchestra is comprised of the most ambitious and outrageous musicians in Phoenix today – making it the hottest super-group on the hot city scene! Beginning with a strict repertoire comprised of classic Afrobeat music, PAO has now penned an abundance of original material that melds the eclectic heritage of the ensemble with that classic Afrobeat style. The outcome is a truly powerful sound that pays homage to the masters while maintaining a fierce individuality.
