    Jam Bands

    Grupo Fantasma has been praised as one of the most important independent acts in the Latin genre and has continually defied expectations to create one of the most unique musical voices to come out of the United States in the last decade. In 2011, they garnered further acclaim by winning a Grammy(their second such nomination) for their self–produced release El Existential on Nat Geo Music which the Wall Street Journal called “Latin music both new and traditional…vibrant fusions that transcend easy classification.”

    The band’s incendiary live show, declared by NPR as “seamless whenever and wherever they’re on stage” has brought the band to major festivals and venues internationally including Bonnaroo, North Sea Jazz Festival and Lowlands in the Netherlands, Kennedy Center, London’s O2 Arena, Montreal Jazz Festival, WOMEX, Tempo Latino (France) as well as two tours to Kuwait and Iraq to entertain US troops. Their diverse spectrum of devoted fans speaks to the ensemble’s universal appeal beyond just Latin or world music fans.In addition, they have worked or recorded with Maceo Parker, Sheila–E, Curt Kirkwood of the Meat Puppets, Ruben Ramos, GZA of the Wu–Tang Clan, cult–hero Daniel Johnston and many others.

    Buyepongo

    Latin

    With deep roots in South and Central America, Buyepongo draw heavily from the Latino musical culture. Taking their cues from traditional "roots" music of Colombia, Haiti, Belize, Honduras and the Dominican Republic. Buyepongo create a very vibrant polyrhythmic sound by seamlessly fusing merengue, punta, and cumbia. The group's pulse and power is built around the drum and guacharaca (pronounced: wah cha rah ca) giving them an upbeat tropical flare.

    Some members have traveled to other countries to study with musical legends. Other members have been schooled in a traditional setting. Buyepongo as a whole contribute years of rigorous practice and dedication to their musicianship. They have taken all their influences and carefully honed in on their craft.Buyepongo is an infectious sonic explosion of blaring horns and syncopated accordion licks. Tight booming bass lines transcend you from the inner city, to a sunny island surrounded by a blue ocean. Your soul then succumbs to the slaps of the conga as you become hypnotized by the melodious harmonies being sung. You are now in a tropical haven. Get Ready To Dance!

    Dance/Electronic

    Dubbed a “mix-master of chaos” by Newsweek, DJ Chucuchu possesses a chameleonic ability to jump between music genres. A pioneer of the hybrid “Electropical” music genre, he remixes global rhythms (Cumbia, hip-hop, reggae and more) with innovative electronic beats. He has participated in international music festivals such as First Night Festival in Sidney and Big Day Out in cities across Australia and New Zealand, and has shared the stage with such music personalities as Lee “Scratch” Perry, Margarita “La Diosa de la Cumbia,” Mad Professor, El Tri, Celso Pina, Los Fabulosos Cadillacs, Molotov, and Nortec. While remaining a fixture in the clubs and bars of Mexico City, Tijuana and Guadalajara, DJ Chucuchu brings his infectious rhythms to cities across the United States and Europe.
