Preview: Grupo Fantasma at Kessler Theater
If you currently have a pulse, there's something in Grupo Fantasma's Latin funk oeuvre that will move you. The Austin big band has backed Prince, won a Grammy for 2010's El Existential, and singer/multi-instrumentalist Adrian Quesada still manages to find time for side projects such as Brownout, Ocote Soul Sounds and the Echocentrics, which are all variations on GF's vibrant sound. Chile's cumbia-ska collective Chico Trujillo gets the party started and pulses raised.
