Who are these guys?
They are, for lack of a more descriptive genre, a Latin/World Music group who perform what they call “California Rumba”. They mix in a little Jamaican Roots and Argentinean Folklorica as well as American Alternative Roots.
This is a style quietly brewing in the clubs and cafes around southern California, and the south beach Miami area. It’s a style influenced by the European and South American Rumba styles, but performed with the aggressiveness of an American pop/rock attitude.
Their music is extremely infectious. The group sings in both Spanish and English. Their audience is international and intergenerational. They have performed very successfully in and around southern California for the past several years, as well as in New York, Florida, Hawaii, Utah, Las Vegas and Mexico.
Their members have appeared in Films, Television, Radio and have also performed on numerous CD recordings of many well known artists from around the globe. Their members'' compositions have been the soundtracks for film, television and radio programs.
