Sávila
Sávila is a medicinal plant that grows wild in tropical climates all over the world, as well as the name of
cumbia/latin/world/r&b inspired music and visual art project by guitarist Fabiola Reyna, vocalist/artist
Brisa Gonzalez and percussionist extraordinaire Papi Fimbres. Since 2012, Brisa and Fabi have been
exploring culture, activism, and the multi-faceted experience of being Mexican-American womxn and
artists in the United States. Currently, all three members of Sávila reside in Portland, OR and are deeply
active in creating and bringing together latinx communities through performances, art, and events.
Joined by Papi Fimbres in 2016, Sávila solidified their percussive sound and in 2018 were named best new
band by some of Portland’s most acclaimed musicians, joined Shannon and the Clams and La Luz two
seperate west coast tour in May, supported Bomba Estereo, Mdou Moctar, and Explode Into Colors, Y
La Bamba, El Sancha and are currently on a consecutive streak of SOLD OUT shows in Portland, OR and
beyond.
“Sávila is a band that can't be neatly packaged into a brand or traced to a curated set of influences. But
rather than feeling like some inaccessible, abstract mass, their music feels like a warm embrace—the
communal equivalent of self-care.” - Shannon Gormley, Willamette Week Best of 2018
