Rola Music Festival Rafts Into Miami With Latin Music's Heavy Hitters
What do you call a rowdy bunch of Latin Americans showing up in Miami to work for your dollars?
The Rola Music Festival, a three-day concert event featuring some of the biggest music names in the world that end in Gonzalez.
Representatives include Venezuela's Patafunk, Spain's Jarabe De Palo, Puerto Rico's Jerry Rivera, Colombia's Diva Gash, and Miami's own Mr. Pauer and Locos Por Juana, to name a few.
But just in case you've never heard any of their music, here's a short guide to some of the acts who will be performing.
Oscar D'Leon is pretty old. He's bald. But this "Lloraras" song is a hit no matter what language you speak.
Jarabe De Palo sound like they fell off the back of the Coldplay truck and have been running to catch up ever since.
Diego Torres sounds like he fell asleep during a telenovela in 1985 and is still living it.
Willy Chirino ... We don't even care about the music. (It's basically a Cuban lounge act version of the Beatles.) Let's focus on the fact that the chicks in this video are smokin'.
Los Pericos ... Smoke a fat spliff to this ish.
Julieta Venegas ... Damn, she sound sexy when she talks.
Locos Por Juana rule! Best band on the bill, hands down.
