Suenalo, the Miami-based 8-piece Afro-Latin-funk-jam band, explodes on to The Green Parrot Stage for two pelvis-grinding nights of of funk, mambo, hip-hop, and jam-band-style with shows beginning at 10 PM on Friday and Saturday nights.
Any Parrot patron present for Suenalo‘s past Parrot shows will remember a barrage of music that’s simultaneously Afro-Cuban, Dominican hip-hop, R&B, Latin-Funk, Cuban Rumba, and Colombian Cumbia. The ensemble employs rhythms from Brazil to Jamaica, including samba, rumba, son, hip-hop, and reggae, mainly focusing on fusing Afro-beat and Latin rhythms with funk and rhythm and blues.
The group’s members form a multicultural cocktail, a crashing wave of African beats, reggae, dancehall, and samba that make Suenalo one of the most eclectic bands to emerge from Miami in years. Formed in 2002 in the vibrant neighborhood of Little Havana, Suénalo has won legions of loyal fans and recently garnered Best Local Latin Rock Band honors from the Miami New Times, where they were dubbed as the source of Miami’s best new spin on rock, Latin or otherwise.
