Congo Sanchez – the First Year

Congo Sanchez, formed just last year by producer and instrumentalist Jeff Franca, takes you on a unique musical journey through an unequaled brand of psychedelic, outernational funk. Based in Washington, D.C., Jeff Franca, who is also the drummer for Thievery Corporation, manages to blend influences from Jamaica, Latin America, and Africa into a live performance that includes vocals, MC, drums and live electronics.

After starting with what Franca called “five crucial shows” – including Electric Forest and a Colorado tour with local favorite Dubskin – Congo Sanchez had played throughout the United States and is now back in the studio working on his second release, with Flex Mathews and Haile Supreme. Even with all of this happening within the first year, Congo Sanchez isn’t stopping. One particular show is coming up Friday, June 28th in Washington, D.C. at the Rock and Roll Hotel. You can get more information and get tickets here.
