By now, you’ve probably gathered that I have an affinity for bands that bring the party to the stage. Translating the energy from their recordings to their live show and visa versa. This next band is no exception.
Meet Systema Solar, ambassadors of the vivacious lands that make up Colombia’s Caribbean coast, and heirs to a musical region so rich in folkloric music that it …

It’s no little known secret that a country once suffocated under a brutal dictatorship, has now experienced a cultural rebirth and contributed dozens of bands ranging from electro-pop fusions to hip-hop hybrids to indie-folk creations back out to the world.
In this resurgence, Chile’s music scene, despite all its facets, has valued artistic integrity above all. Musicians here seem to have an affinity for the …

Typically, on the Saturday of LAMC, things decompress and we can just take in the music.
But not this year.  With Raul broadcasting his show (3-6pm PT) from NYC on Sat and Sun, we had to scramble to make in to Central Park for the last big LAMC Summerstage show and then rush back for some live interviews to broadcast on KCRW.
At Central Park it …

(Read about Day 1 here)

I gotta say the weather in NYC is just fine this year. The least oppressive New York summer of any LAMC we’ve been to.  The Big Apple’s fine when it doesn’t feel like a Baked Pie.
The Conference floor looks a lot different than yesterday.  A cacophony of hearty greetings and on-the-fly interviews, packed with people, and a challenge to move …

The Quinceañera!
A coming of age in Latin American culture, no less so for the Latin Alternative Music Conference, which is celebrating 15 years since it’s inception. The cultural parallels beg for a shout-out and are sprinkled throughout as Raul and I witnessed the installations of mannequins adorned with Quinceañera dresses before the conference opened to the public.
