City of The Sun is John Pita, Avi Snow and Zach Para. Three guys from all around the world — Ecuador, Seattle, Israel — coming together in NYC with two guitars, a box, some bells, and a sound far greater than the sum of those parts. Their music has been called “tremendous,” “powerful,” “mesmerizing,” and “a re-invention of acoustic music.” It’s acoustic, but electric. Instrumental, but lyrical. Worldly, but deeply personal. City Of The Sun runs the gamut from wide-screen post-rock dynamics to gypsy jazz syncopations.
“It seemed as though the aggressive guitar work skated right atop post-rock chord progressions that were held down by a cajon and tambourine. The New York City band’s modern flamenco influence begged comparisons to Rodrigo Y Gabriela, showing the crowd that headbanging acoustic music exists.” - Jambase
“We don't get much instrumental rock these days… Yeah, lyrics can make it easier to convey mood/meaning, but if you can do that with just a sonic landscape, you're a true master of your art. And City of the Sun are shaping up to be master artisans. ” - Baeble Music
