Joining us on the show


Female-led powerhouse band, Sang Matiz, has garnered a reputation for enlivening audiences with their insatiable World and Afro-Latin beats which fuse Tropical elements with touches of Funk.

With musical finesse, they’ve perfected a unique combination of styles that weaves catchy, syncopated melodies with flamenco-infused guitar licks. Sang Matiz takes you on a journey of cultural expression with an exciting fusion of rhythms full of passion, energy, and wild creativity!
