Moe's Alley presents a Latin dance party with Pasto Seco + Flor De Caņa.
Pasto Seco Band is a Latin American dance band pulling from traditional central, south american and caribbean styles like Cumbia, Mambo, Saya and Salsa to bring people together in celebration. They play wild abandon, lots of horns, drums and percussion, plus accordion, guitar and bass. Based in the San Francisco East Bay, they have an all-star 14 member band, who hail from Chile, Colombia, US, Mexico, Cuba and Argentina. Through various community partnerships they work with youth helping to expose them to the richness of Latin American culture. Pasto Seco Band has blessed the stage at many prominent SF bay area venues bringing the dance party wherever they go.
Flor de Caņa, a septeto from Santa Cruz, plays high energy dance music, including Cuban Son, Colombian Cumbia and various other Caribbean styles. They blend obscure with the known, old time with the new, keeping true to the roots while creating their own sound. The impressive rhythm section, comprised of upright bass, guitar, cuban tres, button accordion, congas, bongo, timbales, maracas, guiro and bell is sure to get you moving. Add to that mix a solo trumpet, lead vocal, strong coro section and you have a sound that will inspire all audiences who want to see, hear and experience vibrant music. Candela!
