Latin Funk at Sunday on the Mile
From the first Latin funk stage at Coral Gables's annual Sunday on the Mile jazz festival, a new generation of Hispanic musicians will boldly spin Latin rhythms into a realm of fusion where no jazz improviser has gone before. The stage hosts local favorites Spam Allstars, Xperimento, Suenalo Sound System, and Skampida. Meanwhile, the sounds on the Bank of America stage should be equally crowd friendly. Jazz group For if the Flies opens the show, and will be followed by electric troubadour Roberto Poveda and New York's electronic Latin jam group Si Sé. Instead of shouting azucar to Celia Cruz cover songs, you may find yourself blurting out crema catalana as Lucrecia, straight from Barcelona, Spain, dives into a smooth modern groove.
