CAB brings the Bandoleros to Miller Auditorium

Aug. 30, 2002

KALAMAZOO -- Featuring music that blends Spanish, Mediterranean, and African influences, the Bandoleros will perform at Western Michigan University Friday, Sept. 6, beginning at 8 p.m.

WMU's Campus Activities Board is sponsoring the concert in Miller Auditorium. All tickets are $5 general admission and available through the Miller Auditorium Ticket Office at 269 387-2300.

The sound of the Bandoleros is often compared to that of the Gipsy Kings, combining percussive guitars, driving drums, and haunting vocals to create a sound characterized by the fusion of flamenco, pop, rumba, and folk music from around the globe. The group, which has performed more than 200 shows per year since 1995, just released their second album, "Bandolero."
