Benefit for Yonnel Augustin Nov. 22 at Ruta Maya from 7-10 p.m. $7 per person
Friends Buscando El Monte, Arma del Alma, Ritmo 3 and Trovadores Juan Antonio de Los Angeles and Mauricio Callejas will play a wide variety of Latin sounds to raise funds for Yonnel.
Yonnel is a well known percussionist in the Austin music scene. Unfortunately this strong musician suffered from a stroke Oct. 15. So many of his friends in the business are joining forces to throw him a benefit to assist him with unexpected medical expenses.
The Hatian native has spent many of years in Austin spreading his ethnic pride by playing Hatian folkloric music. In addition, he enjoys playing many Latin rhythms contributing to many groups such as Arma del Alma, The Brew, Trovador Mauricio Callejas, Chinamba, Big Chief Kevin Goodman, Gustavo Rodriguez, In addition to playing drums and congas, Yonnel is a songwriter, composer, and arranger.
The Latin musician community really appreciates the role you play in helping us promote this event. Thank you in advance,
Arma del Alma
