SEEDArts presents the final event of its 2013 Arts Gumbo Series, Brass Bands Around the World, on Saturday, November 9 featuring Banda La Mejor, big band brass-infused traditional music of Mexico. Comprised of musicians from the states of Jalisco, Nayarit, Michoacan, Guanajuato & Zacatecas, Banda La Mejor includes popular Mexican rhythms like cumbia, corrido and bolero. Listen for the unique sounds of the tambora (a type of sousaphone) enforcing the bass note and rhythmic undertone. |
