Karikatura
Karikatura
Karikatura is a New York based roots pop band, making life-affirming, body-shaking music that moves people around the world. The band has toured everywhere from Japan to Brazil, across the United States and Europe. An organic synthesis of all the music heard blasting out of car windows and shops onto the streets of NYC, Karikatura lives where cumbia meets hip-hop, reggae meets klezmer and indie-rock meets merengue. Neither purist nor revivalist, this is music of the present, for the future. They are currently recording their next full-length album. Karikatura was also accepted into the 2016-2017 American Music Abroad “American Voices” program. They will be assigned to international tours by the US State Department in 2017.
Los Hacheros
Los Hacheros
Since 2011, Los Hacheros have been setting dance floors aflame with a gritty soulfulness that has been absent far too long from the modern Latin scene. Through their music, one hears echoes of legends such as Ray Barretto, Fania, and Arsenio Rodriguez, but with an immediacy that is unmistakably New York, now. Combining the raw emotion of Papote Jimenez's vocals, Eddie Venegas and Itai Kriss' powerful mambos, and Jacob Plasse's psychedelic tres guitar, Los Hacheros have created a revelatory sound that is both unique and timeless.

Los Hacheros' debut album, Pilon, out now on Chulo Records, was recorded live on a 388 Tascam tape machine with no computers or overdubs. The result? A perfect blend of polyrhythms and improvisational flights, earning the praise of die-hard salseros, while also introducing a younger generation to the music’s beauty and enduring vitality.
