Regina’s Andino Suns will be heating up the stage at the Cathedral Arts festival stage this week. If you have been missing some world music to get you moving, check out one of Regina’s best-kept secrets.

Normally they play the smaller venues, but always to a sell out crowd. Now they are looking at bringing their Latin inspired rhythms to a larger audience.  To kick it off, they will be the closing band at the Cathedral Neighborhood Center for the Arts Fest this Saturday.

The five-piece band has a high energy that is fused with Latin grooves to get the crowd on their feet, and keep them there. They play a great mix of original music, Latin favourites, and some classic covers from the grunge era.

The band’s members hail from Regina and Moose Jaw, and they have a strong family connection. Front man Andres Davalos, started the band and few years back with his brother Pablo, and Andres Palma. Since then the Mehlsen brothers, Eric and Leif, have added their talents, along with Pablo’s son, Antonio.

If your heading to the show, come prepared to dance. They take the stage 10pm this Saturday, at the Cathedral Neighborhood Centre.
