The connection comes when you turn it up, and you’re transported to a tropical psychedelic paradise. Miami-based group Elastic Bond mixes traditional Latin, Soul and Afro grooves with modern electronic sounds; always rooted in a solid foundation of organic songwriting, soulful vocals and good vibes. Venezuelan producer Andres Ponce and Honduran singer-songwriter Sofy Encanto formed the band in 2006, and soon after guitarist Buffalo Brown and trumpet player David Burgos joined forces to expand its unique sound. Their latest indie-hatched EP “Frecuencia Natural” has brought the band along the east coast from North Carolina, up to crowds in Williamsburg. Last summer they showcased as one of the Local Bands We Love at LAMC in NYC; even garnering airplay on KCRW in LA, as well as overseas in Venezuela, Mexico and Dominican Republic.
