This weeks guests: Sonorama Discos w/ Marlowe Baca & Dos Santos with interviewer Scott Mcniece
Sonorama is a Chicago-based DJ collective and record label fronted by Charly Garcia, Eddy Baca & Marlowe Baca. Created with the objective of promoting world roots music through our obsessive love of vinyl music culture. More than just DJs, we collect, scavenge, and are ever in search of new sonic and rhythmic delights both new, old, sometimes forgotten, with the purpose to share our discoveries.
Dos Santos From jazz-tinged psychedelia to dissonant cumbia, Chicago-based quintet Dos Santos is at the forefront of a new era of Latinx alternative music, deftly bridging pan-Latin and progressive sounds to capture the idealized aesthetics of 21st-century América. Hailed as one of Chicago's most impactful marquee performers, Dos Santos pride themselves on the power of their live shows, as well as their ability to seamlessly distill pan-Latin American and progressive musical sounds.
The group’s five members (Peter Vale, Alex Chavez, Daniel Villarreal-Carrillo, Jaime Garza, Nathan Karagianis) have their own storied careers in a range of styles—including jazz, R&B/soul, traditional Mexican folk, punk, cumbia, salsa, and electronica—in addition to a history of critical involvement in arts education and social justice organizing
