Description

Buyepongo's infectious pan-Latin sound takes the traditional Afro-caribbean beat of Belize and Guatemala to L.A. for a funky makeover. When Edgar "Meshlee" Modesto, the group's founding member, had the opportunity to visit Central America, he discovered a new direction for Buyepongo and was enlightened by the rhythm of Garifuna culture. The buyangu sound--a blaring, but danceable explosion of sax, guacharaca and accordion--inspired his band's revamped style and their latest album Todo Mundo (All the World). Buyepongo means to cause a ruckus, so they won't be hard to find this Friday at BackBar.
