La Misa Negra is a 7-piece band from Oakland, California, known for their unique blend of cumbia and high-energy, Afro-Latin music. On stage, they deliver an electrifying performance that explodes with infectious dance grooves and punk rock energy, powered by horn and accordion-driven riffs, a fierce rhythm section, and a vintage-inspired sound. Since their live debut in the fall of 2011, La Misa Negra has toured the country, sharing stages and festival bills with the likes of Red Hot Chili Peppers, Stevie Wonder, Lenny Kravitz, Thievery Corporation, SZA, Mon Laferte, Julieta Venegas, Ana Tijoux, Bomba Estereo, George Clinton, Antibalas, Budos Band, and Ozomatli. On the strength of their wild and one-of-a-kind shows, they have gained a reputation as one of the most exciting live bands to emerge from the Bay Area in recent years, garnering a diverse fan base that transcends musical, cultural, and generational divides.
Dos Santos is a quintet based in Chicago. Collectively raised through the pedagogy of Latin American traditional and popular music, their future-minded sound gestures forward into an idealized new progressive American music, as rooted in Chicago as it is communicable with the world.
In March of 2015, they released their critically-acclaimed self-titled debut cd Dos Santos. In 2016, the band released their follow-up EP entitled Fonografic on Electric Cowbell Records produced by Beto Martínez of Grammy Award-winning Grupo Fantasma. A year later they teamed up with Money Chicha to release a 7" vinyl split entitled Summit Sessions on Sonorama Discos. Their highly-anticipated debut LP Logos on International Anthem is now available worldwide. They have toured the U.S extensively and have also performed in Mexico.
The group’s five members (Alex Chavez, Jaime Garza, Nathan Karagianis, Peter Vale, Daniel Villarreal-Carrillo) have their own storied careers in a range of styles—including jazz, R&B/soul, traditional Mexican folk, punk, cumbia, salsa, and electronica—in addition to a history of involvement in arts education and social justice organizing.
