L.A.’s favorite psychedelic funk rockers Chicano Batman and the fashion designer turned indiepop/electronica Columbian-American songstress Kali Uchis prepare the crowd for a night of dancing with their dreamy grooves and body shaking beats. Norteño music icons Los Tigres del Norte close out Tropicália, whipping the crowd into a frenzy of Norteño dance twists, twirls and caballito kicks.
The often mentioned eclectic line-up ensures that there is an artist or group representing any given dance genre. Tropicália keeps the crowd moving by mixing soul music legends Brenton Wood and The Delfonics with the queen of rockabilly Wanda Jackson, plus reggaeton royalty her highness Ivy Queen and Jhené Aiko R&B songstress.
There will be throwback performances from 90’s RnB star Ginuwine and futuristic sets from the modish lo-fi singer/songwriter/rapper King Krule. Latin music will be well represented throughout the day with the cumbia sounds of Sonora Dinamita & vallenato groove direct from Monterrey Mexico Celso Piña & the iconic psychedelic sounds of the ‘Tropicalia’ movement Os Mutantes direct from Sao Paolo Brazil. Of course representing Los Angeles sweethearts Very Be Careful, Las Cafeteras, Buyepongo, La Banda Skalavera, Thee Commons, Cuco plus plenty of DJ sets & ambiance.
As if this wasn’t enough Tropicália welcomes the late addition of iconic Mexican band Café Tacvba whose musical mix of punk, electronica, folk, cumbia and just about every other Latin rhythm will add to this highly anticipated event.
This event will be hosted by East LA native Felipe Esparza best known for his raw, real-life comedy, his irreverent on-stage persona, wild hair, and his often-imitated phrase, “What’ sup fool?”
