Radio La Chusma:
Representing the beauty and complexity of the border culture, the reggae/ cumbia/ rock band known as Radio La Chusma, is sparking up the music scene. They make uplifting the people with their message and hard hitting rhythms, look easy. With four part harmonies and battling solos, this new "Pachuco sound" takes the reggae vibration to a whole new level. Bringing their unique perspective to the rest of the world, Radio La CHusma breaks down the borders of language and religion by bringing people together. Deeply rooted in Mezo-American and African traditions, the music brings a ceremonial feeling to the audience.
