Concerts in the Park Welcomes Guitarra Azul—Latin Jazz-Flamenco Band

The Village of Mundelein in partnership with Mundelein Park and Recreation District are pleased to present the 2018 Concerts in the Park series. This week, Concerts in the Park welcomes Guitarra Azul—Latin Jazz-Flamenco-Rumba Band.

The all-original music of Guitarra Azul is best described as Rumba, Flamenco, and Latin Jazz with many international influences. According to online reviews, Guitarra Azul is…”breathtaking virtuosity, passionate and fiery guitars, hypnotic, mesmerizing world percussion, irresistible rhythm, unforgettable melodies, spirited dance, a sensual, smoldering performance of inspired music and dance! A danceable, interactive joyous celebration of life!!! Guitarra Azul will transport the audience to a different place and time.”

One online reviewer summed up the band by writing, “One of the most exciting Latin bands I have ever heard. Guitarra Azul is a very hot, hop Chicago-based Latin band, playing their mix of Contemporary Latin, Mediterranean and Middle Eastern music led by Stefano, a brilliant Flamenco guitarist and composer. This band is a treat to hear. Each song tells a story and the musicians express themselves in the telling of this story with their hearts and souls—no words.”

The concert takes place on Sunday, August 12 from 5-6:30 p.m. at Kracklauer Park. All concerts are FREE! Attendance at Mundelein’s concerts in the park has been excellent…so join in the fun! Bring your own snacks and drinks and have an enjoyable evening in the park. Also, Tropical Chill will be at the park selling Hawaiian shaved ice and pre-packaged ice cream treats.

Concert in the Park organizers work behind the scenes to book bands and musical groups that will appeal to a wide range of musical tastes. Attendance so far this year has exceeded expectations and feedback from concert goers has been overwhelmingly positive. The Concerts in the Park summer series is sponsored by the Village of Mundelein and the Mundelein Park and Recreation District. For more information please call 847-949-3200.
