Meet Colombian band El Caribefunk and see them around Philly this summer
Full of high energy and spirit, El Caribefunk is a powerhouse. The Colombian band’s sound is Afro-Carribbean music with elements of reggae and funk. It’s the type of music that you can feel in every nerve of your body, and it makes it impossible to stay still when listening to it. The lyrics are in Spanish, but the beat and rhythm are so powerful that the songs still hold the same ferocity for non-Spanish speakers. El Caribefunk is spending a summer in residence at singer-songwriter Ryan Tennis’ home base, The Clubhouse in South Philly, and it will play various venues around the Philadelphia area this summer, beginning tonight at Time Restaurant. For more information on where to see El Caribefunk, check out the band’s summer schedule below, as well as a live performance of its song, “San Antonio.” UPDATE: El Caribefunk added a show July 25th at Ardmore Music Hall with West Philadelphia Orchestra; more information on the show can be found here.
