BLEACH* FESTIVAL PRESENTS SABOR Y CONTROL
Sabor y Control (in English, “Taste and Control”) is a Peruvian salsa dura orchestra established in 2000 by saxophonist Bruno Macher. Macher and his band set out to rescue the roots of the genre while seeking their own identity, both in sound and lyrics.
“This party band will have us all up on our feet. We welcome you Sabor, to the Gold Coast, Australia.” – Bleach* Festival Artistic Director Louise Bezzina
Originating in New York in the 1970s, salsa dura is a style of salsa music that places emphasis on the instrumental part of the music over the vocals.
With eight albums produced to date, this ensemble of over 10 performers seek to convey their collective experiences of their homeland in Lima, Peru into music. Interpreting and sharing their culture and way of life is a passion Sabor y Control feel strongly about.
Visiting Australia for the first time, audiences will get the chance to get up and dance as Sabor y Control take over the Gold Coast for Bleach* Festival 2017.
(doors open 4.00pm)
