Helado Negro – The son of Ecuadorean immigrants, Helado Negro was born in South Florida in 1980. His childhood was suffused with tropical heat, humidity, hurricanes, all refracted with the rich sounds and colors of the various Latin American cultures of southern Florida. Pounding bass beats from passing cars, boom boxes bouncing down the block, and late-night parties called “peñas” provided a foundation for Helado Negro’s interest in sound and lifelong quest to discover the unlimited variety of objects used to produce music.
Jiridón – Jiridón present a dynamic live show featuring music and dance performance. They describe their sounds as diasporic, feet-moving, hip-shaking, conscious dance music – representing Colombia, Venezuela, Brazil, Cote d’Ivoire, and U.S.
