THE OFFICIAL “LATINO ART NOW!” AFTER PARTY
SATURDAY, APRIL 9TH | 10 PM
$8 | 21+
Dos Santos: Anti-Beat Orquesta rocks the sounds of popular pan-Latin American dance genres—from cumbia to salsa. Their gritty, grassroots approach captures the “golden age” of streamlined tight-knit ensembles that shook sweatbox dance floors with raw and fierce energy throughout Latin America in the 1970s and 80s—honest dance music with no frills and no fear, anchored by piercing guitars, garage organs, and spirited percussion.
The group’s five members (Peter Vale, Alex Chavez, Daniel Villarreal-Carrillo, Jaime Garza, Nathan Karagianis) have their own storied careers in a diversity of styles—including jazz, R&B/soul, traditional Mexican folk, punk, cumbia, salsa, and electronica—in addition to a history of critical involvement in arts education and social justice organizing. Their visceral sound draws from this sonic, cultural, and political well of influence, and is guaranteed to make you move.
Ida Y Vuelta
Ida y Vuelta’s presentations come from a long tradition known as the Fandango (dance party) of the Mexican folk music called Son Jarocho. The genre is a fusion of African, Arabic-Spanish and Indigenous music and poetry. Ida y Vuelta’s instrumentation is native to the Veracruz region and includes harp, jaranas (8 string small guitars), requinto (lead 4 string guitar), leona (acoustic bass), zapateado (percussive foot tapping) and they also incorporate the quijada (donkey jaw) and cajón (peruvian box). Ida y Vuelta performs traditional “sones” which date back over 300 years with their own arrangements and original tunes.
The Ponderers feature global tracks with a focus on Latin America, spinning eclectic sounds created by the world’s fiercest chicas poderosas in both digital and vinyl formats.
