Guagua | Brandon Music | Music | Seven Days | Vermont's Independent Voice



When: Sat., Feb. 4, 7:30-9:30 p.m. 2017

CANCELED. Guagua’s sound could be tough to categorize, but the band does it in two words: “psychotropical jazz.” Born out of a jam session at Burlington’s Radio Bean coffee shop and bar in 2004, Guagua found its groove in African, Caribbean and Brazilian polyrhythms. Layered with piano and guitar melodies and peppered with percussion breaks, the Burlington band’s songs are spirited and, at times, undeniably danceable. Albums such as 2009’s Tres give listeners a taste of the group’s technique, but during live shows the players really spread their wings with one-of-a-kind solos and arrangements. The sextet serves up toe-tapping tunes with world-music flair at Brandon Music.

Price: $20; $45 includes dinner; preregister; BYOB.
