Superfónicos is Colombian Funk. Better yet, it is Caríbe Soul…fed by the Indigenous and African roots of the band’s Colombian heritage, telegraphing a politics of peace and unity from the stage to your ears. They only ask that you dance toward a place in your mind beyond struggle and strife.

Inspired by their experience at 2014's LAMC (Latin Alternative Music Conference) in New York, Superfónicos was formed when bassist Nico Sanchez and guitarist Erick Bohorquez began discussions about creating a group with a foundation in Afro-Colombian rhythms. They soon teamed up with guitarist Andres Villegas and percussionist Daniel Sanchez, and started rehearsing together during time away from their other bands. That core group developed the band’s unique sound, laying the foundation of what was to come. In 2016, gaitero and vocalist Jaime Ospina—who has recorded with the likes of Pacha Massive—relocated from Colombia to Austin, where he met and instantly connected with the group. It was also during this time that the band met with famed local producer and Grammy winner Adrian Quesada at Level One Sound. Their recording session resulted in a sound that not only encapsulates a moment in time but helped to define Superfónicos as a collective. It is a musical mestizo that is ever-changing but deeply rooted in Caribbean flavors.

Superfónicos will release two singles, “Sigue Pa’lante” and “Rio Negro,” in early 2017, followed by an album slated for early fall. Sigue Pa’lante reminds the listener to keep moving forward with your goals, especially when life’s challenges get in the way. “Rio Negro” encapsulates the band’s philosophy, with lyrics that imagine a river where people can come together to be cleansed of the illusion of divisiveness.
