Sondango was born of a long and deep musical friendship between pianist Richard Nelson Hall and vocalist Sandra Aran, who found ready accomplices in bassist Dan Feiszli and drummer Russ Gold, all enamored of Latin grooves, jazz and pop. With this fabulous ensemble, they celebrate their love of the grand diversity that is San Francisco — a place where cultures and sensibilities meet with the here and now. Guitarist Scott Foster has invited his good friends in Sondango to join him tonight at Bird & Beckett, his second home, where he’ll lend his inimitable talents to their heady brew.
Embracing San Francisco’s cultural brew, Sondango’s original songs in Spanish draw on themes of love, loss, joy and passion. Rooted in the musicians’ shared devotion to jazz and Latin rhythms, Sondango brings the joy in the music to you.
