Helado Negro to bring ethereal, Latin electronica to Austin
Let Helado Negro‘s chilled-out electronic grooves move you Sunday night (Oct. 26) at the Empire Control Room. Helado Negro, aka Roberto Carlos Lange, is the son of Ecuadorian immigrants who grew up in Miami and now lives in Brooklyn. His Austin show with Sinkane promises songs from Helado Negro’s latest album “Double Youth” as well as his signature dreamy, soundscape musical style that has turned heads in the Latin alternative music scene.
The bilingual – English and Spanish lyrics- along with genre-bending music that weaves Latin rhythms with contemporary beats makes Helado Negro another example of artists creating Latin music for a new generation of bicultural listeners.
Tickets for the 21+ show are $15. Doors at the Empire Control Room (606 E. Seventh St.) open at 9 p.m.
