For eight years El Tule (el TOO-lay) has been honing it's unique sound combining influences of Cumbia, Merengue, Afro-Cuban, Rock, Salsa and Reggae. The music is influenced by art, history and culture often focusing on legends and tales of the mystical. Fan favorites include El Chupacabra, an eerie tale of the legendary goat sucker, La Ruta Maya, a pounding tribute to the famed Mayan Route and Media Noche, an ode to the dream like hours between night and daybreak. The ever evolving sound is a natural progression brought forth by different backgrounds, experiences and influences. While adhering to the bands original goal, the sound has taken it's own course. The sound...'El sonido' that El Tule brings to each performance naturally transcends all cultural and social backgrounds. Simple, El Tule is for those who love to dance, feel good and enjoy the positive expression of music.
