Música Fresca Festival
"Live instrumentation is really the essence of Latin musical cultural roots. The intention of this festival is to shake things up a little bit and define our own sound," notes Yerba Buena vocalist Andres Levin. "This festival" is a four-act bill with a kitchen-sink approach to the fusion formula: Yerba Buena is known for primal Afro-Cuban beats and a rootsy dance sound. Voltio infuses reggaeton with his deep growl. Akwid combines rap and traditional Mexicana. And Radio Mundial comprises Latino rockers from the streets of Brooklyn. Rayme Samuels
