Description

Qunito Sol

Quinto Sol’s incorporation of Latin rhythms across cumbia, rumba and son into a vibrant, sun-soaked reggae sound is the epitome of music rooted in community. Quinto Sol’s incorporation of Latin rhythms across cumbia, rumba and son into a vibrant, sun-soaked reggae sound is the epitome of music rooted in community. Having emerged from the artist/activist community of East Los Angeles in 1994, the collective uses music as an awareness tool for socio-political and economic issues. Their self-produced independent album, Barrio Roots, was their first national release and established a firm presence in the thriving Los Angeles Chicano-arts movement, alongside contemporaries like Quetzal and Ozomatli.

Alika

Alika is at the forefront of the Latin American dancehall scene; an iconic figure of the fight against injustices and violence in Argentina. The Uruguayan-born artist launched her career in 1994 as part of one of Argentina’s first hip-hop groups, Actitud Maria Marta, though soon leftthe band to pursue a solo career. By 1999, she had created her own independent project, Alika & Nueva Alianza, based entirely on her passion for Rastafari culture and the Spanish reggae genre. Not long after, Alika was shaking-up the reggae world with with socially conscious lyrics, breathtaking energy and a remarkable stage presence.
