Nohe y Sus Santos
Nohe & Sus Santos (Nohe & Her Saints) have not sat on their hands during the pandemic. They released their debut CD, the at once subtle and intense - and completely sublime and “eloquent offering” (RootsWorld) - Tempestad, (Santo Records/Avokado Artists/distributed by Casete - May 2020), and a number of singles, including their original takes of the Christmas classics "Feliz Navidad” & “Los Peces en El Rió”, ”La Nave Del Ovido" and an acoustic version of the title track of their CD "Tempestad" (with special guest Jordan Wax of Lone Pinon). Their music was heard in the feature length film ¿Dónde Está La Cigueña? (Where Is The Stork?, September 2021). And the band's multi-talented vocalist and namesake Nohelia Sosa had a role in the hilarious feature film Half Brothers. Their return to the road in late 2021 included head-turning sets at Lotus Fest, Santa Fe Bandstand and other venues. March 16, 2022 they roll into Austin, TX as an Official SXSW Artist.
Nohe & Sus Santos is a five-piece band mixing Spanish and English vocals with the musical traditions, rhythms and sounds of the Americas, incorporating Alt-Rock en Espanol, Cumbia, Pop grooves and beyond. They have shared stages with the diverse likes of Ozomatli, Red Pears, Making Movies, Samatha Fish, delivering a Latinx vibe full of soul, passion and a good dose of attitude, leaving dancing crowds chanting “una más!”. The band has RootsWorld enthusing “Behold a conjunto with enormous potential… Eloquent”
Featuring musicians from Honduras and the US, Nohe & Sus Santos create songs that do much more than simply cross language and cultural borders. The band explores the multicultural experience of the Latinx generation, delivering positive messages of self-identification and respect for their heritage.
Fronted by celebrated Honduran vocalist Nohelia Sosa, the band features the extraordinary string wizardry of Randy Sanchez on electric and acoustic guitars and tres, and Dennis Jasso holding it all down with an impeccable groove on the drum kit. The band is rounded out with bass and there is alway an additional master musician on hand to add some magic on congas and additional percussion.
Currently Nohe & Sus Santos are working on new material for their second CD (including penning some material with with Raul Pacheco of Ozomatli) and gearing up to get back out on the road to bring their tempestad to national and international audiences. There will be no be seeking shelter from this storm.
