The best kept secret in music

Press


"The contagiousness borders on the rediculous, as if Suénalo is cooking up some kind of musical meth on stage."

"The dance floor gets hopping when one of the club’s regular acts, Suénalo, plays its addictive fusion of Cuban son and rumba, Dominican hip-hop, Colombian cumbia and American funk."

"The group's 10 members form a multicultural cocktail. Suénalo is one of the most ecclectic bands to emerge from Miami. " - Ocean Drive Magazine


"Born of 10 lives that have spanned from South America through the Caribbean and up to New York, this band is blowing up Miami with a fusion sound that's all its own."

"Afro-Latin funk? Whatever you dub it, the Suenalo sound is buzzing from the fashionable warehouse parties of Wynwood to the trippy lounge scene of South Beach."

Bio

In the neon jungle of Miami, in dusky bars and on moonlit beaches, Suénalo Sound System has the natives dancing. The rhythms, a riotous intersection of Afro-Cuban, Latin, R&B and hip hop, come courtesy of bassist Carlos Guzmán and percussionists Luis Gonzalez and Alan Ramos, effortlessly fusing the sounds of distant continents into their own distinctive premium blend. The horn section, saxophonist Juan Turros and trombonist Chad Bernstein, bring the funk, cascades of fire and brimstone rippling through the gyrating crowds, and guitarists Phil Maranges and Gerard Glecer bring the blues, distorted wails and wah-wah injecting the mix with bar room soul and Hendrix’s voodoo spirit. Keyboardist Tony Laurencio lends his fingers and voice to the fray, harmonizing with Amin De Jesus and El Chino who spit bilingual rhymes and sing sweet, heartfelt melodies. Suénalo is a ten-piece, but its music is so powerful and intense you’d swear there was an entire village on stage.

Formed in 2002 after a series of jam sessions in Little Havana’s Monkey Village, a communal home of musicians and artists, Suénalo has undergone a number of personnel changes but its unique musical essence has remained intact, a mélange of Western, Latin, and Pan-African styles that has won the band legions of loyal fans and Best Local Latin Rock Band honors from the Miami New Times. Suénalo has performed at the Latin Funk Festival in Miami and NYC, Carnaval on the Mile, Fete de la Musique, the Calle Ocho Festival, and the 2006 Langerado Music Festival, headlined by Ben Harper, the Black Crowes, the Flaming Lips, and Wilco. In addition, they’ve shared the stage with Afrobeat heavyweights Antibalas, the Latin Grammy winning Bacilos, and Latin Grammy nominated acts Bosacucanova and Locos Por Juana.
