The night also serves as the debut of Dolor Folktronico, a new band fusing latin rhythms with heavy bass and synths. PUM PUM as a party provides a space for the Latin traditional scenes to mix with the urban.

When: Wednesday April 24, 2018. 10pm – 4:00am

Why: The Latinx music scene in Chicago is incredibly diverse and this is the party to showcase it. Bembona infuses her mixes with her afro Boricua-Panameña roots giving the audience a whirlwind of trap meets cumbia meets salsa meets the occasional politically charged sound bite. “Chicago’s Best DJ” Rae Chardonnay opened up the first above-ground PUM PUM at Harbees and has been invited back to play her selections of juke, R&B, and any surprise Latin favorites. Los MaraFackas will keep the night going with heavy bass moombahton, and reggaeton fanatic, Hush Papi, will have you singing and dancing through the night.
