Call to Arts! Expo to Feature Sombra

Breakthrough Southern California Spanish rock band Sombra! has been selected by Artists Helping Artists (AHA!) to perform at their Call to Arts! Expo, Conference and Festival to be held August 16th at Cal State Fullerton. Sombra was chosen from a host of bands and soloists who auditioned at a private studio for a selection panel.

Sombra is a Southern California band made up of a collaboration of individuals from different backgrounds but with the common bond of a strong passion for rock en Espa?ol. Their music blends melodic rock with classic rock and pop vocal influences for a refreshing and creative sound that combines the best of Spanish rock with beautiful harmonies. They are touring consistently in support of their new music and to further expand their fan base. Sombra is Fernando "Karl" Montiel on vocals, Jose' Cortez on bass, Erik Ayala & Kenny Noriega on guitars and Daniel Arrayaga on drums.

The Call to Arts! Expo is for independent thinking artists, creative visionaries and grassroots arts leaders. There will be over 70 arts, music, entertainment, and media arts exhibitors as part of the Expo, with more than 100 performers and performing acts on two separate stages, including 22 top acts as part of the Creative Vision Showcase on main stage.

The festival will be showcasing rock en Espa?ol and other Latino artists as well as local independent English bands. Some of the acts representing the Latin community at the Expo include Angelique, Zocalo, Roxing Kafe, and Enjambre, to name a few.
