Led by Venezuelan keyboardist-producer Andres Ponce and sultry, seductive Honduran singer-songwriter Sofy Encanto, the Miami-based, multi-culti band Elastic Bond made their Nippertown debut at WAMC-FM’s The Linda earlier this month in a concert sponsored by WEXT-FM.
In support of their new album, Real, the decidedly 21st century band incorporated elements of Latin music from the past, concocting an enticing, retro-futuristic hybrid sound. Fusing together folkloric rhythms and electronic beats, the band offered an intoxicating, cutting-edge, world-beat soul groove.
