Town of Taos Presents: A FREE Dance Party on the Historic Taos Plaza featuring Grupo Fantasma

Free concert on Saturday, August 31, 2019 from 7:00pm - 9:00pm.

The nine-piece collective formed in 2000 in Austin, Texas, and are now in their 19th year as a band. Grupo Fantasma has been praised as one of the most important independent acts in the Latin genre and has continually defied expectations to create one of the most unique musical voices to come out of the United States in the 21st century. In 2011, they garnered further acclaim by winning a Grammy (their second such nomination) for their self–produced release El Existential on Nat Geo Music, which the Wall Street Journal called "Latin music both new and traditional... vibrant fusions that transcend easy classification."

The band's incendiary live show, declared by NPR as "seamless whenever and wherever they're on stage" has brought the band to major festivals and venues internationally, including Bonnaroo, Austin City Limits, North Sea Jazz Festival (Curacao and Rotterdam) and Lowlands in the Netherlands, Kennedy Center, London's O2 Arena, Montreal Jazz Festival, WOMEX, WOMAD, Tempo Latino (France) as well as two tours to Kuwait and Iraq to entertain US troops and a recent tour in Pakistan and Qatar. Their diverse spectrum of devoted fans speaks to the ensemble's universal appeal beyond just Latin or world music.
