â€œFunk cruises through the Caribbean picking up Afro sounds from Cuba and Puerto Rico. Reggae meets rock in a head-on collision. Jazz and electro hook up for a sidewalk makeout session. Hip-hop seems to hum from the very pavement, and R&B drifts in on the night wind. Suenalo reaches to far-flung corners and retrieves all these, takes them and mashing them together, marrying themâ€”disparate players melded into a somehow harmonious blend. It defies logic that such diverse influences can find balance at the deft hands of one band. And yet they do.
Itâ€™s the result of a 10-year process of compromise and of growth between some of South Floridaâ€™s most talented musicians, who come together and share an ideal: that music should move their audience. Suenaloâ€™s roster is stacked, with nine fulltime members boasting chops to rival anyone anywhere. Their lineup is a whoâ€™s who of brilliant musicians who have not only made their immovable imprint on Miamiâ€™s local music scene, but well beyond.â€
