About New Caracas
Founded by Luis D'Elias in 2012 as a personal project seeking to experiment with Venezuelan music, the band has evolved since into a collective of musicians led by Luis, PJ Duffy, Brendan Pajak, and Evan Waaramaa, that craft a vast soundscape of rhythms and melodies inspired in the South American experience, its folklore, and its traditions. New Caracas is the idea of a city that is a multicultural hub, that welcomes people from all over the world, and is the pumping heart that beats to the rhythm of Joropo, Lando, Gaita, and many other influences from the southern edge of the Americas. With their previous album, Origenes y Destinos, the band was nominated to the Independent Music Awards, the Hollywood Music in Media Awards, and the Premios Pepsi Music in Venezuela. Currently they are working on their new album, that will showcase the talents of singers of all over North and South America telling stories of immigration and the Latin American Diaspora.
Colombian artist Alea is a progressive and pioneering artist of her generation.
Alea's music arrests you with authenticity and honesty. Alongside brilliant performers Sinuhé Padilla-Isunza and Juan F. Ruiz; Alea delivers a high energy performance that travels through many countries in Latin America, recreating its rich culture. The communion of Cumbia, Vallenato, Rancheras, Jazz, and Pop make possible their diverse soundscape with that New York City edge.
