Biography

In the neon jungle of Miami, in dusky bars and on moonlit beaches, Suénalo Sound System has the natives dancing. The rhythms, a riotous intersection of Afro-Cuban, Latin, R&B and hip hop, come courtesy of bassist Carlos Guzmán and percussionists Luis Gonzalez and Alan Ramos, effortlessly fusing the sounds of distant continents into their own distinctive premium blend. The horn section, saxophonist Juan Turros and trombonist Chad Bernstein, bring the funk, cascades of fire and brimstone rippling through the gyrating crowds, and guitarists Phil Maranges and Gerard Glecer bring the blues, distorted wails and wah-wah injecting the mix with barroom soul and Hendrix’s voodoo spirit. Keyboardist Tony Laurencio lends his fingers and voice to the fray, harmonizing with Amin de Jesus and El Chino who spit bilingual rhymes and sing sweet, heartfelt melodies. Suénalo is a ten-piece, but its music is so powerful and intense you’d swear there was an entire village onstage.

Formed in 2002 after a series of jam sessions in Little Havana’s Monkey Village, a communal home of musicians and artists, Suénalo has undergone a number of personnel changes but its unique musical essence has remained intact, a mélange of Western, Latin, and Pan-African styles that has won the band legions of loyal fans and Best Local Latin Rock Band honors from the Miami New Times.
