I had the good fortune of seeing Askultura last week in my hometown opening for Mrs. Skanotto and they put on an absolutely incredible show. There was almost no one in the crowd but the energy on the stage made it one of the best performances I’ve ever experienced. The band has nine members, they travel around in a yellow school bus, and they are very friendly, down to earth people.
The group’s mission statement does a pretty great job of summing them up:
Mission Statement: To spread the party gospel of energia positiva & symphonic rumba punk elements to all curves of the galaxy. To exercise the spirit of the streets on stage. To hang with good people in every town Askultura is lucky enough to pass through. To incite moments of brief rebellion while leaving a lasting aftertaste for change.
