La Yegros

Sat. 11/5, 2p: From the Buenos Aires underground cultural scene and the Argentinian borders with Brazil and Bolivia, Mariana Yegros (aka), La Yegros embraces the multicolored Latin American mestizaje through a fresh interpretation of cumbia featuring electronic beats and her unique vocal timber.

She gives an on-air interview about her "new cumbia" and USA tour beginning in Albuquerque during the Raíces show by host Cristina Baccin. La Yegros performs this Saturday, November 5th, 8pm, at the National Hispanic Cultural Center (4th and Cesar Chavez Blvd. , Albuquerque, New Mexico) in partnership with Avokado Artists as part of Festival Chispa.
