Starting this evening, June 5th, Susan Torres y Conjunto Clemencia will begin their weekly residency at the South Austin restaurant, Little Mexico, 2304 South First Street from 7-9pm.
(L-R) Susan Torres: button accordion, voz, Bradley Jaye Williams: bajo quinto, cuatro, voz, Clemencia Zapata: drums, voz and Javier Cruz:electric bass
The band members are all accomplished Austin based musicians that have great talent and entertain with a very down home feel. If you do not know them when you arrive, you will certainly feel like friends before you leave.
The conjunto has this one CD available for purchase and it is a great way to get your conjunto on either at home or on the road. I dare you to try to stay still once you get this music going, as it is meant to get you on the dancefloor!
It is also reminiscent of an era of the music my elders heard in South Texas and that I have fond memories of, as the older cousins made sure I learned about it growing up. It remains with me as I journey in life and is also something I continue to pass on with the new generation in my family now.
So if you are not familiar with these amazing artists, there is no time better than this!
