Vox Urbana
((https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ikYrGTkI7Pw))

Vox Urbana is a six -piece band that combines Latin-based sounds with stories and experiences that occur in the Arizona/Sonora border region. The bi-national band is based in Tucson, Arizona and has been creatively narrating stories of the border community since 2010. The band’s original repertoire breaks any language barrier via its unrelenting danceable grooves.

Vox Urbana’s instrumentation consists of guitar, keyboard, sax, trombone, bass guitar, congas, and drums. As a collective composing body, Vox Urbana continuously aims to learn and expand its musical influences. Among the musical styles found in the band’s sound and identity is a meztizaje of ethnic sounds such as Huapango, Cumbia, Chicha, Latin Funk, and Salsa.

Vox Urbana was recently awarded a grant by the Tucson Pima Arts Council to complete it’s Cumbia Corridos project, wherein the band interviewed members of Tucson’s immigrant community and used their personal histories as the basis for the lyrics of a story song project. The project was debuted in early 2016 and the band is currently working on a recording for release sometime in 2017.
