Rebel Diaz

Rebel Diaz brothers RodStarz and G1 grew up in Chicago and came up in The South Bronx, NY. They are the sons of political refugees from Chile who fled a CIA-funded dictatorship in the 1970s. Revolution raised Rebel Diaz, and the culture of Hip-Hop provided them with their own Nueva Cancion. They have been doing rebel rap since the Clinton era, sharing their story and those of their people; el barrio, the hood, the poor, los inmigrantes. The brothers' bilingual sound has been shaped by pieces of South American folk, house, and latin percussion gettin' down with boom-bap, breaks, and 808s.

La Paula

La Paula Herrera is a modern, Chilean singer-songwriter. She takes inspiration from the folkloric root of the Southern Cone. Her music travels through folklore and pop, with delicate touches of electronic music. In February 2013 she won the Silver Gaviota for the best song in the Viña Festival in the folk competition. Today Paula lives in Chicago and she's preparing the release of her latest album completely composed during the pandemic while isolated in the Chilean little town of Los Molles.

Nelson & Paola Sosa

Nelson Sosa and his daughter Paola share the passion they have for Latin American Folk music by taking the audience on a musical trip through Central and South America, Mexico and the Caribbean, as well as including the most valuable ingredients from European and African Culture.
