Fans of Buena Vista Social Club
, Jarabe de Palo
and Manu Chao
will love Santa Pachita's horn-infused blend of Rumba, Salsa, Ska, Cumbia & Bolero rhythms & vibes.
Santa Pachita is a 9-piece Tucson band that has been playing together since 2012. Guitarist, Miguel Reyes, and bass player, Victor Cruz, started the band after working together on other musical projects. They brought in talented musicians that have a variety of different musical backgrounds. The result is a danceable fusion of ska, cumbia, and rumba-salsa. The congas, flute, and trumpet add depth to the energetic music that is influenced by bands like Manu Chao.
The focus of the band is to explore and fuse rhythms like rumba, salsa and son and create an interactive musical experience for the audience.
