Rotation: What local artists are listening to

This Week: Savi Fernandez of the Savi Fernandez Band


“Lately I’ve been listening to Funky Meters, RH Factor, Giant Panda Guerilla Dub Squad, Manu Chao and Katchafire. I pretty much get heavy into a band and their CD stays in my car’s CD player for about a week at a time.”

(Reggae-funk act the Savi Fernandez Band plays the Jahlando Reggae and World Music Festival Saturday, Sept. 17 at the Plaza Live with Spiritual Rez, Rising Lion, Liberation 44, the Burnin’ Smyrnans, Scholar’s Word, 3rd Stone, KG Omulo and more. Admission is $12.)
