Learn lan­guage of Latin mu­sic

Cockburn Gazette - - NEWS -

PERTH band Im­pe­rio Latin Sound is bring­ing the sound of Latin Amer­i­can mu­sic to Fre­man­tle.

The band, which was formed in 2014, will be per­form­ing at the Trop­i­cal Latin Fi­esta.

Band leader Johnny Cas­tro said they played mainly Latin mu­sic.

“Latin mu­sic has a va­ri­ety of dif­fer­ent gen­res, styles and rhythms; for ex­am­ple, salsa, merengue, cumbia, bachata and reg­gae­ton,” he said.

“Im­pe­rio Latin Sound likes to com­bine all these dif­fer­ent sounds and rhythms for both the Span­ish-speak­ing au­di­ence and the English-speak­ing au­di­ence, mak­ing us the only Latin band in Perth to com­bine both lan­guages to one sound.”

Cas­tro said they were ex­cited to per­form at the fes­ti­val.

“It will give us an op­por­tu­nity to show peo­ple not only our mu­sic but our unique mix­ture of sounds and rhythms,” he said.

“It will also give us the op­por­tu­nity to en­gage not just with the Latino au­di­ence but with non-Span­ish speak­ing peo­ple.”
