1000 Fuegos & Emily Sheila @ PAX
Thursday, October 18 2012, 9:30 pm - 2:00 am
Compositions that paint an afro-cuban face with a transplanted american smile that only finds home in a jaded heart. 1,000 Fuegos presents ancestral sounds entombed by the filter of today’s modern pop perspective. All the way from Hialeah, FL – a concrete melting pot of cultures spanning from the Caribbean, South and Central America and the US- this music transcends our modern concept of diversity.
Currently residing in Portland (OR), this firey movement continues to gather local strength and support through regular performances for more than a year and will be releasing their first official EP in December (2011) including recordings from Miami *Phat Flow ( and Portland. With this EP, 1000 Fuegos will expand by performing throughout the NW and California. Recordings for a full-release begin in late October for a release in March of next year.
