"An evolving local group with a cacophonous yet catchy approach..." –
The New Yorker
“Afuche’s palpable onstage energy is key to the unique corner the band has carved for itself in the ever-saturated Brooklyn music scene.” -
In a way, the title is an accurate representation of the band itself – another high-energy outfit, though imbued with a sheer sense of enthusiasm, as well as a distinct Latin flavour (the band’s name actually refers to a very distinctive percussion instrument used in Latin jazz).... With plenty of groovy, infectious rhythms and a genuinely omnivorous attitude, Afuche were for many the true revelation of the evening." -
Fire of Unknown Origin/Rafaella Berry
Based out of Brooklyn, NY and creating a group sound that is truly their own,
is a band that needs to be heard by lovers of adventurous, modern progressive music! Formed by
Ruben Sindo Acosta
in 2008, they have been adding to the ensemble and evolving their sound by writing, performing, and touring non-stop – it was at one of their many shows where we found them and watched their continued development with keen interest. Afuche is a 5 piece band featuring Ruben on keyboard, vocals and percussion, Zach on guitar,
on baritone sax and
on drum. Taking their cues from Can, The Dirty Projectors, Frank Zappa, King Crimson, James Brown, Tortoise, as well as African and Afro-Cuban music, they take these musical influences as a base and apply their own group sound to it and bend it all into a hybrid, original and very progressive contemporary rock music that is interestingly complex without losing its inviting quality; most of all Afuche is a lot of fun.
Highly Publicized Digital Boxing Match
is a showcase of a group whose sound is more than the sum of its parts. Recorded mainly live in the studio with minimal textural overdubs in one day, it is Afuche presenting their work with just as you would experience it at one of their lively and exciting shows. The fearless intensity and the strong group dynamic in the playing - extremely notable in such a young band - pours through the speakers; their sound is catchy and mesmerizing and will have you moving in ways you never thought possible!
