FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Guanabanas Offers up Cortadito and The NagChampayons for Latin Night August 5
Monthly Latin music series returns with a doubleheader of Miami-based Cuban traditionalism and Afrogalactic / tropidelic funk
Jupiter, FL – July 12, 2017 – Guanabanas Island Restaurant & Bar is by now known for its waterfront beauty, open-air seating, delectable menu offerings, and a monthly Latin music night. On any given evening, the area’s best reggae / roots / rock bands can be seen on stage, but for nearly two years now, there is at least one night per month reserved for genres with a little more spice in them. On Saturday, August 5, 2017, beginning with a 4 to 7 p.m. happy hour engagement by Cortadito and closing with a 9 to 11 p.m. set by The NagChampayons, Guanabanas’ tropical flavor will be truly and sonically enhanced. The venue is located at 960 North Highway A1A, Jupiter, FL 33477.
“I’ve been trying to fit Cortadito in to our Noche Latina series for some time now, and am glad to finally be able to present them to our music lovers,” says Guanabanas talent buyer Matt Cahur. “They definitely promise to deliver something rich and lively, just like the traditional warm milk and coffee beverage they are named after. The Nags have killed it each time they performed up here – I’m looking forward to them returning with their usual funky fire.”
Cortadito’s focus is on performing the traditional Cuban music of the early 20thcentury. From Son Montuno, Guaracha, Boleros, Nengon, and Bolero Son, this dynamic ensemble brings the listener back to a time when Trio Matamoros, or Ignacio Piniero ruled the Cuban music world. The era when popular music was Cuban Music and Son Montuno was influencing music throughout the globe. From time to time, Cortadito is backed by a variety of guest musicians, which gives the group a sound reminiscent of the Buena Vista Social Club. Learn more at https://www.facebook.com/
The Nag Champayons have raised musical bar down in Miami in terms of creativity, messaging and collaborative efforts with each new release. Their heady and infectious 2016 single “Brazilian LSD” came with a visually stunning video, and served as a follow up to 2015’s masterful Rising Sounds of a Sinking City, a darkly serious and ominous 21-minute environmentally-conscious theme. They continue to play local and regional music festivals, and are currently in the studio recording new music. For more details, visit www.NagChampayons.com.
