Culture Clash presents SAPO featuring Buyepongo
In mid-1970s San Francisco, a young Chicano band named SAPO–sporting afros, sweaty vests and bell bottom jeans–sets out to surpass Santana's success by making it big in the music industry with their own smooth acoustic Latin sounds. They meet a shady producer/agent and upholstery guy also named Sapo who promises SAPO-the-band a record if only they come down to L.A. where an industry "god" lives in a yacht off the Malibu coast. It's a slithery world of mischief and deception and slippery hippy lily pads where anything goes, loosely based on Aristophanes' The Frogs.
