September 27, 2011 · Updated 11:36 AM
A nine-piece dance band, Cordaviva, will bring a what promises to be a powerhouse show to the Red Bike at 8:30 p.m. Friday.
The band plays music influenced by the rhythms and styles of the African diaspora — a blend of coukous, rumba, Afro beat, funk and various Latin styles. A horn section backs up vocal harmonies sung in multiple languages, soulful guitars and driving percussion.
The band has played Seattle venues such as The Triple Door, Nectar Lounge, The Tractor Tavern and ACT Theatre. Their show on Vashon is free and for all ages until 11 p.m. and ages 21 and older after that.
