THOMSON PLAZA FOR THE ARTS
THE ARSCHT CENTER SERIES
Established in Miami in 2006, Elastic Bond creates an uplifting sound described as “psychedelic tropical soul.” The band started out as a studio collaboration between Venezuelan producer-musician Andrés Ponce and Honduran singer-songwriter Sofy Encanto, and soon developed into a five-piece band that blends funk, hip-hop, soul and Latin music performed in Spanish and English.
In 2013, Elastic Bond signed with Nacional Records, and released the album Real in the United States and Japan. The album debuted at No. 1 on the iTunes Latin Alternative charts and made a few top lists of 2013. In 2017, the band released the album Honey Bun, featuring an organic soul sound with a glaze of hip-hop. Some highlights of their 2017-2018 live shows were in New York for the Latin Alternative Music Conference, Chicago’s Pilsen Fest and in Mexico City at Festival Vive Latino as special guests of Los Amigos Invisibles, who also featured Elastic Bond on the single “Espérame,” from their Grammy-nominated album El Paradise.
Doors open at 6 p.m., along with food and beverage service. Check-in is located at the Ziff Ballet Opera House doors on NE 13th Street.

The single is a joyful song that delivers a positive message of security and self-respect which also inspires the younger generation to keep dreaming.
The music video was filmed in Miami, FL and was directed by renown Venezuelan director Nuno Gomes (Ozuna, Natti Natasha). Characteristic of Gomes’ previous works, the video is filled with vibrant neon tones, colorful scenography and shows “girl-power” through energetic and choreographed sequences in the music video.
Sará made her mark in music last November with the release of her debut single “Bésame”. The song and video delivered a beautiful message of acceptance, tolerance and inclusivity, making it clear that love is love. At just 20 years old, Sará wants to empower young girls to believe in themselves and aspire to follow their dreams. In addition to recording new music, she’s currently studying music production and business at the Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music in New York City. Sará is set to release her debut album in 2020, which will include both “Bésame” and “Chica Bom Bom”.
