Sonámbulo is a Costa Rican band that was founded in 2005 under the same name, when a group of friends dedicated to circus arts and creating music for their own performances gets together to create an original musical project.They start with Cuenca on the Cuban tres and vocals, Ariza on the bass drum and bombo track, Tito on bass and el Parce on the bongos. Later Cuba joined on the congas, as the fifth element. On this basis their first pieces were created during evenings and nights of jammin with friends. Today Sonámbulo shows a rich cultural background with members of different Latin American countries (Cuba, Colombia, El Salvador and Costa Rica).

It took five years to mature the concept Psicotropical but now, with the launch of their new album "A puro peluche", a manifestation of non-stop dancing takes possession of the audience.

It’s worth highlighting the power and great energy stream that is felt during each of their live shows, reaching a state of “trance” in which the musicians and listeners merge together; it could be defined as a feedback session between the band and the spectators, creating an atmosphere jam-packed with dancing, singing and euphoria

Sonámbulo is a music project that creates original music fusing African, latin, traditional american, and modern rhythms with a contemporary sound and esthetic, predominantly driven by high-energy dance rhythms, creating the genre “psycho-tropical”. Its songs range from Son Montuno, Cumbia, Bolero, Ska and Reggae added with elements of Rock, African beat, Funk, among others, giving each piece a Psicotropical identity .Instrumental improvisation and freedom on stage are just two elements that characterize Sonámbulo.

In addition to the rhythmic and cultural fusion, Sonámbulo has a somewhat unusual instrumental line-up, combining the “Cuban Tres”, the “Bombo Track” (a modified Peruvian Cajón), electric bass, congas, bongos, conventional drum-set, timbales, other percussion, keyboards, guitar , saxophones and trumpet. The result is a rich and wide range of sound, varied and unique.

Sonámbulo has performed on several environmental campaigns to help to preserve Costa Rican natural richness.
