Canteca De Macao to Perform at Flamenco Festival 2012 in New York City

Canteca De Macao
Mestizo fusion band Canteca De Macao is scheduled to perform on March 11, 2012, at 9:00 pm at at SOB’s as part of Flamenco Festival 2012’s series titled Flamenco & Beyond.

“Extreme fusion” is perhaps the best definition of the Madrid-based group Canteca De Macao, an innovative band that has continued to surprise audiences during a career spanning ten years. Returning to New York after their 2010 debut, the band’s non-stop musical carnival embraces a wide array of influences: from Latin music to flamenco, reggae to jazz, American rock to Mediterranean folk.

With a 9-member lineup that includes alternating male and female singers and a juggler, Canteca’s live shows represent mestizaje at its most freewheeling and fun.

Canteca De Macao (their name is a play on the Spanish phrase for “cocoa butter”) has released three albums, Cachai (2005), Camino de la vida entera/A Way of Life (2007) and Agua pa’ la Tierra/ Water for the Earth (2009). Funded entirely by their loyal fanbase, their latest disc Nunca es tarde/Never Too Late is released this month.
