Sanalejo, a seven-piece band from Colombia, is topping charts, winning awards, and breaking hearts. Even if you dont speak Spanish, the groups infectious pop sensibility and energetic horns transcend all language barriers to win fans on an international level. After gaining recognition in their homeland, the Sanalejo bandmates are crossing the border and bringing their sound to the States. The Latin outfit, which plays a rhythmic blend of guasquita, bambuco, funk, ska, and tango, is aiming for global success. It combines the catchiness and aesthetics of a boy band with the substance and talent of a seasoned Grammy winner. A renowned team of producers crafted Sanalejos latest album, Alma y Locura, so its no wonder the release exploded with five number one singles in Colombia. You can see these South American cuties in their U.S. debut concert tonight at Templo Lounge. The show begins at 11:00 p.m.. Tickets cost $30 in advance, $35 at the door, and can be purchased at www.groovetickets.com. Call 305-535-5636, or visit www.sanalejomusic.com.
