Grupo Fantasma Announces Summer Tour
Grammy nominated Latin funk orchestra to play selected dates this July

“The grassroots success of Grupo Fantasma marks them as one of the decade’s most important artists in the Latin genre.” -All Music Guide

Grupo Fantasma
Grupo Fantasma, one of the funkiest, finest and hardest working Latin acts to come out of the United States in the last decade will continue their relentless assault of the road this summer. Their trademark innovative sound and incendiary live shows garnered a cover feature in Pollstar Magazine, radio spots on NPR’s “Day to Day” and extensive press coverage throughout North America and Europe. Their most recent album, the Grammy nominated Sonidos Gold spent several months in the top ten of the CMJ world charts.

Jose Galeano, the band’s elder statesman and primary songwriter (nephew of the infamous percussionist “Chepito” from the original Santana band) was especially moved by the recognition. “The Grammy nomination sends a message that the band’s music and performances are of the highest quality, and that we can conquer anything we put our minds to. It is quite an accomplishment. Finally the masses will know that we kick some serious ass!”
