What do you get when you fuse the hip-shaking beats of samba, wailing horns, and the interlocking rhythms of Balinese gamelan? You get a one-of-a-kind, funky sonic fusion called ‘Sambelan.’ Shake it up with us at Ashkenaz as we show off this new invention and ‘samba-fied’ Gamelan X classics.
Sang Matiz has been performing for 7 years, fusing World and Afro-Brazilian/Peruvian beats with contemporary rhythms such as Pop, Jazz, and Funk. Thanks to a grant awarded by The California Arts Council Endowment for the Arts and The San Francisco Arts Commission for Cultural Equity, they released the album, “Ship It!.” In August 2015, they were chosen and honored to open for the legendary Cuban band Buena Vista Social Club Orchestra for their “Adios Tour.” Most recently in July 2016, Sang Matiz was invited to share a stage with the lively and eclectic LA-based band Ozomatli. Throughout the years, they’ve also had the great opportunity to collaborate with various renowned Bay Area musicians such as: Jackeline Rago (Master Percussionist), Miguelito Martinez (Flutist/Composer), Silvestre Martinez (Composer/Percussionist), and Grammy Award-winner Braulio Barrera (Pacific Mambo Orchestra), among many other national and international acts as Jorge Santana (Malo) and Pete Escovedo.
