Don’t miss Sabor Asi if you like to listen to a Latin band in Bangkok. A dynamic ensemble of Filipino & Thai musicians passionate about traditional and contemporary Latin music. The members come from different musical backgrounds, as a result, SABOR ASI plays a wide variety of musical genres. From Jazz to Pop, and has a unique sound and musical style that would make your feet move the groove.
The Birth of The New Music Retro
SABOR ASI is the brainchild of Billy Alcordo. Who spent almost 8 years of his music career playing Traditional Latin Music with a Cuban Band from Havana, Cuba. A band that plays a traditional Latin beat is not very easy to come by in Bangkok. Listening to Latin beats played live can be a challenge. So he decided to talk to his closest musician friends from the Philippines and Thailand. Talked bout the idea of putting up a band that is all Asian musicians but playing Latin Music. He always had the desire to share his knowledge in Traditional and Contemporary Latin Music to other musicians. Musicians that have the same passion for Latin Music. And who wants to learn how to play in a Latin band.
Then SABOR ASI was born.
The band possesses distinctly unique qualities compared to other Latin bands in Bangkok. Firstly, “Sabor Asi” Latin band is not just your typical music band. In addition, it is also composed of accomplished businessmen and entrepreneurs. Furthermore, they are former full-time musicians that have made the transition from playing music gigs as a primary source of income to have their own personal businesses.
The Musical Performance
Gig musicians in Bangkok are always doing covers of popular songs. Therefore, it is considered as a normal custom in Bangkok. But SABOR ASI has something else in mind. For instance, doing covers of popular songs. But in a different and unique style. Sabor Asi is certainly something new and unique. “The New Retro”.
The main objective is to give the audience a taste of a new and different musical flavor. In other words, fresh renditions to old and new popular songs. Aside from music, there are also other things that Sabor Asi is very passionate about. One of those is doing charity performances for the benefit of those who are less fortunate. Orphanages and schools for the underprivileged that do not have enough supplies are just some, to mention a few. Sabor Asi is always keeping open doors for charity and benefit performances.
