MUSIC

 

La Fusión — Oxford’s premier Latin and World Music ensemble

La Fusión performs popular songs from various Latin American countries. The group is made up of musicians from the Oxford/University community including Andres Diaz (vocal, guitar, percussion), Monique Ma (vocal, violin, percussion), Hunter McGuary (trombone, electric guitar), Daniel Roebuck (trumpet, percussion), Lazarrus Miller (piano), Amy Fisher (upright bass), Ricky Burkhead (percussion). Their music explores early Latin rhythmic patterns such as the ‘Abakua’ tradition, which helped create salsa, samba, soca, calypso, and reggae.

 

Maggie Rose

Maggie Rose has come into her own with this current earth-conscious, trippy country-soul stage of her ever-evolving musical persona…Rose’s performances [during CMA Fest and Bonnaroo] showed her embracing her inner soul diva, belting with fire on ‘It’s You’ and the pulverizing ‘Pull You Through.’ Just to drive the point home, Rose and her band even stretched out on a swinging cover of ‘The Letter,’ doing a more-than-respectable impression of the funky Mad Dogs & Englishmen arrangement originally sung by Joe Cocker.” – Rolling Stone Magazine
