At La Cita Bar in downtown Los Angeles last Wednesday night, Cinco Santos showcased the music from their upcoming release from which the single “Azucar Y Amor” has already been released.
Those brave people who ventured out in the cold night to make their way to La Cita Bar were rewarded with a good mix of pop rock and Latin sounds with touches of flamenco that quickly got everyone warmed up.
With band members coming from diverse musical backgrounds and cultures, like Colombia, Spain, Argentina, Mexico, Canada and the U.S., Cinco Santos have created a sound that combines elements of Latin pop, jazz, flamenco, and rock, which makes for a very eclectic show.
Lead singer and rhythm guitarist, Daniel Jimenez, worked the stage and the crowd with great charisma and often showing glimpses of his past experience as rocker with his singing delivery and his guitar skills.
The rest of the band members showed their virtuosity on their instruments and easily maneuvered through the different musical styles which could take the band from the pop oriented single “Azucar y Amor” to the harder rocking songs like “Duplicidad”.
The official release of the album is set for the first quarter of 2014 and which will then take the band on the road to promote the album.
To keep track of the band’s activity, you can follow them on their website http://www.cincosantos.com/ and on facebook.
