Originating from Kona, Hawai‘i, Leche de Tigre (leh-cheh-deh-tee-greh) relies on adrenalized Latin percussive rhythms, mixed with a healthy dosage of Spanish, Gypsy, and Rock inspired vocal and guitar arrangements with a driving Funk foundation of bass, drums and horn. Percussive grooves counter the melodic impact of acoustic guitar and the result is an eloquent and soulful vocal and musical formula that evolves spontaneously, complementing both of the multilingual lyricists.

Leche de Tigre was formed in 2009 in Kailua-Kona, and is comprised of Big Island residents Dan Brauer on vocals, acoustic guitar, and Cuban tres, Lee Motter on vocals, Michaeloha Elam on trumpet, Chris Wilson on drums, Robby Malovic on bass, and Ruben Ruiz on percussion. These musicians combine to make, “a potent musical brew” according to HPR-The Conversation.

With material from their first studio album Lactophilia and an abundant collection of original tunes, covers and traditional songs in their repertoire, Leche de Tigre will be performing at the Kahilu Theatre Friday, Nov. 2, at 7 p.m. Tickets are $20 and can be purchased online, by phone (808) 885-6868 or at the Kahilu Theatre Box Office located at 67-1186 Lindsey Road in Kamuela.
