Q’vans finds new rhythm at Saigon Saigon Bar
Continuing a tradition of great moves and music in the heart of the city, The Caravelle is welcoming Cuban sensation Q’vans Band at its rooftop bar from February 7, 2014. Q’vans debut performance onstage at Saigon Saigon Bar will usher in the first weekend of the Year of the Horse. The band’s flair for dance and modern Latin music will be on show nightly from 9:00pm, with the exception of Tuesdays.
Hailing from Cuba, the five-member band is led by drummer Dalyor Vazquez and trumpeter, keyboardist and singer Joel Rodriguez. Three female singers–Irian Flores, Sonia Hamilton and Lisandra Rondon–perform the band’s captivating choreography. Patrons of Saigon Saigon can expect to hear a mix of soulful Latin ballads, hip-shaking beats and feel-good favourites, as Q’vans draws on its wide repertoire of pop, disco, techno, English and Spanish covers and Latin classics.
In the tradition of Cuban festivals, Q’vans musicians also use instruments such as bamboo sticks, chancletas (sandals) and buckets to create the band’s unique sound.
“After one year performing at some of Saigon’s top venues, finding an appreciative base at The Caravelle is just fantastic,” said Joel Rodriguez. “A real Latin party–that’s what we promise our audience.”
