Aguankó in Concert

  • About

    Aguankó, the ensemble led by percussionist and composer Alberto Nacíf, is a talented group of Michigan-based musicians who are steeped in the tradition of jazz infused Son-Salsa. In La Bicileta and Chiquita, for example, you might hear shades of Conjunto Libre or Eddie Palmieri’s La Perfecta Orchestra. And, like the Fort Apache Band, there are Afro-Cuban folkloric rhythms, as in the percussive Rumba Elemental. Their latest album is graced with a driving funk and sabor that comes only from years of developing a musical sensibility that speaks from the hearts and souls of the band members.
