Latin Roots: New Songs From Austin’s Latin Funk Orchestra Grupo Fantasma

Fortunately there was a great choice for our Sense of Place: Austin Latin Roots segment. It is Grupo Fantasma a 9 piece Latin band that formed in 2000. The band created their own path as a Latin Funk orchestra. They became known along the way for backing many other performers from other genres including GZA from Wu-Tang Clan, even Prince and others. They received the Grammy in 2010 for Best Latin Rock or Alternative Album for El Existential. They have a new album already recorded and set to go later this year. We'll hear a set of those new songs coming up.
