Cuban Bassist Feliciano Arango in SoCal
master Cuban bassist Feliciano Arango will be appearing with his talented family Los Hermanos Arango in San Diego and the Los Angeles area this month. Feliciano was a tremendously influential bassist of Cuban timba music, the bass guitarist for the foundational band NG La Banda. Los Hermanos Arango will be in San Diego at Dizzy's on Feb. 6 and San Diego State University on Feb. 12. I think they are at USC some time around Feb. 3 (sorry but I don't know the LA dates; I believe they might also be playing in Long Beach). Los Hermanos Arango play sacred Afro-Cuban folkloric music with funky grooves and improvisation. Because travel between the US and Cuba is still difficult, this is a great opportunity to see a great Cuban bassist.
