Red Bull Music Academy Panamérika Presents Ana Tijoux, Subsuelo And Kumbia Queers

Bookmark and Share

Red Bull Music Academy Panamérika is bringing to Los Angeles a yearlong concert series that celebrates today's most outstanding Latin alternative artists. The first show of the year will feature a special night of multi-genre music with Chilean rap star Ana Tijoux, Boyle Heights' own Subsuelo and Latin genre-benders Kumbia Queers. The 18 and over show will be held on Friday, March 21 at The Echoplex (1154 Glendale Blvd, Los Angeles) with doors at 8:30pm. Tickets are on sale for $14 online at http://bit.ly/1cCHOR7, and will be available at the door for $16 pending availability.

Ana Tijoux is a critically acclaimed hip-hop artist whose hit song, "1977" has become a fan-favorite, featured in "Breaking Bad" and EA Sports' "FIFA." Born in France to Chilean parents during a time of political exile, her family moved to Chile where Tijoux found a home in the emerging hip-hop scene. Her collaboration with Mexican pop rock star Julieta Venegas on the track "Eres Para Mi" helped expose Tijoux to a mainstream audience after the song became a television and radio hit across Latin America and the United States. Major accolades for her sophomore solo album, 1977, came from notable music writers at The New York Times, Washington Post, NPR, SPIN and Associated Press. Latin Grammy and Grammy nominations for the landmark album came quickly and catapulted Tijoux into international stardom. Armed with her new single, "Vengo," to be released on Nacional Records on March 18, Tijoux will be fresh from her SXSW showcase to share new material and classics with her L.A. fans eagerly awaiting her return to the city.

Subsuelo is a global bass dance and visual arts collective featuring resident DJs Gozar, Ethos, Gazoo and Canyon Cody and live flamenco band with La Tigresa, Gabriel Osuna and Gerardo Morales plus visuals by Juxli and photography by Farah Sosa. Based in Boyle Heights, Subsuelo is leading an eastside renaissance by taking on traditional Latin music, heavy-hitting club anthems, avant-garde electronica, orthodox hip-hop and experimental flamenco for a retro-futuristic party rooted in the past and moving towards the future. The group has collaborated with some heavy hitters, including Toy Selectah, Novalima, Nickodemus, Mexican Institute of Sound, Los Rakas, Nortec Collective, Money Mark (Beastie Boys), 2Mex, Eric Bobo (Cypress Hill), Nu-Mark (Jurassic 5) and more.

Kumbia Queers is a group of six women from Mexico and Argentina who were bored of the punk rock scene in the mid-2000's and decided to focus on the sounds of cumbia.What started out as a fun experiment eventually led to the formation of Kumbia Queers in the summer of 2007. The ladies describe their style as "1000% Tropi Punk," a wild mixture of Afro-Cuban and Latin American cumbia influences, queerness and punk spirit. The chicas are reinterpreting Latin American heart-aching macho posturing while bringing fun and politics together in their own wild style. In 2010 and 2012, Kumbia Queers toured Mexico and played at Vive Latino, the biggest festival in Mexico City. No two concerts are the same - whether it's at the Zócalo in Mexico City, a home for the elderly in Chile or a prison for woman in Buenos Aires, the Kumbia Queers bring new and original flavor every time.
