Thursday, July 9, we are back at our most favorite place, Judy’s restaurant, with a show featuring two amazing live acts:
La Misa Negra:
La Misa Negra is a 9-piece band from Oakland, California that plays a unique blend of 1950’s and 60’s style cumbia and high-energy, Afro-Colombian dance music. Powered by horn and accordion-driven riffs, a fierce rhythm section, and a vintage Colombian sound, La Misa Negra delivers an electrifying performance that explodes with infectious dance grooves and punk rock energy.
Odaymara Cuesta & Olivia Prendes are born & raised Cuban artivists, Hip Hop emcees, independent musicians, poets, theater makers & designers representing womyn, immigrants, and queer people of color as a central part of world change. The Krudas set includes Cubensi Hip Hop, Dancehall, old and new school beats from around the world laced with their extraordinary Afro-Cuban rebel hardcore feminists lyrics and indomitable voices, sounds, dances and energies to empower communities.Formed in Habana in 1999 as a trio Krudas have become a duo since 2004 and brought their raw point of view to the world. They migrated to Austin Texas, US in 2006 and have earned international acclaim performing, recording, speaking, and touring in North, Central and South America and the Caribbean until today.
