Latino band to perform at Coastal

Solazo, an international Latin band, will perform in concert Oct. 1 at 7 p.m. in the Wall Auditorium on the Coastal Carolina University campus. The concert is free and open to the public.

Hailing from Cuba, Argentina and Chile, the five members of this extraordinary band are making their fourth USA tour. Solazo delivers a unique blend of Latin contemporary dance music and soulful ballads that appeal to all ages and cultures. Their newest CD, "Mindful Journeys," is a compilation of original music inspired by traditional styles from Spain, Cuba, Argentina, Chile, Brazil and Ecuador. .

Layered with sensual Cuban rhythms and spiked with the unusual flavors of Andean sounds (panpipe, charango and mandolin), the unique and artful arrangements move fluidly from flamenco to mambo within the course of a single song, creating a rare blend of Latin folk and dance music. .

Kike Rodriguez, Miguel Benitez and bandleader Pepe Aranda provide the three-part vocal harmonies, while Francisco Aranda and Janiah Allen are on percussion. Band members play an array of ethnic instruments..

Wintersun Productions is sponsoring Solazo, and Coastal's Office of Multicultural Student Services and the Diversity Awareness Committee are co-sponsoring the event. Call 349-2863 for more information.
