Based out of New Orleans for the past couple of decades—save for a short, Katrina-imposed exile in Austin—the members of the Iguanas [website | Amazon.com] have (collectively or individually) played or recorded with everyone from Charlie Rich, Alex Chilton, and Willie DeVille to Emmylou Harris, Allen Toussaint, and Pretty Lights. Their two-decade ride has taken them all over the map musically and geographically, yet the inescapable patina of their hometown infuses every note they play.

Through eight studio albums, countless tours and Jazz Fest appearances, and a flood that did its best to take their adopted city with it, it's a testament to the band's endurance that the same four guys that started playing in the early 1990s are still together. Joe Cabral is philosophical about the bandʼs persistence in the face of challenges that would have felled—indeed, have felled—lesser bands. "First of all, this is all we know how to do; weʼre musicians. But more than that," he continues, "we respect the power of the band as an entity, and each individual in the band steps up to play his part. When itʼs good, thatʼs really what itʼs all about."

Rod Hodges agrees. "I donʼt want to get all heady and mystical about this, but itʼs not really an outward reward weʼre looking for. We all enjoy playing music, we all get along, and finding a group of people who can say that after all this time is a rare thing."

Created in the heart of the vibrant New Mexico music scene, Alto Estilo is a music ensemble that features a cross-breed of cultural and musical traditions. Musicians with diverse musical backgrounds honor the sounds of timeless American, Latin American, and Caribbean melodies and rhythms. At the same time, each member adds a distinct and more modern color to the mix, creating a powerful sound that is sure to captivate listeners and dancers alike.

The Levitt AMP Santa Fe Music Series is supported in part by the Mortimer & Mimi Levitt Foundation, a private foundation that empowers towns and cities across America to transform underused public spaces into thriving destinations through the power of free, live music.
