¡A Viva Voz! celebrates with music and dance featuring Ocote Soul Sounds
The self-professed "coconut rockers" will lead a celebration of music and dance beginning at 7 pm on Thursday, April 8 at the Benson Latin American Collection in Sid Richardson Hall at The University of Texas at Austin.
Featuring the bandleaders of Grupo Fantasma and Antibalas – Adrian Quesada and Martin Perna, respectively – Ocote Soul Sounds has been described as "sounding like a sun kissed Brazilian soundtrack from the '70s."
¡A Viva Voz! was developed by former Benson Director Ann Hartness to highlight the library's broad Mexican American/U.S. Latino resources, engage the local community and to celebrate U.S. Latino culture. Past events have featured an array of guests, such as renowned Chicana artist Carmen Lomas Garza, author David Rice, actor Luis Avalos, and comic artists Los Bros Hernandez.
