Pistolera & La Muneca y Los Muertos
7TH ANNUAL HECHO EN CALIFAS FESTIVAL 2006 presents "From folclorico to fusion" with "Pistolera" & "La Muneca y Los Muertos"
Direct from Brooklyn! - Pistolera plays an original hybrid of mexican ranchera, cumbia, banda, and rock. The electrifying quartet features vocalist and guitarist Sandra Lilia Velasquez who delivers her Spanish lyrics like a bullet to your senses, the driving accordion melodies of Maria Elena, and the unbeatable rhythm section of bassist Inca B. Satz and drummer Ani Cordero.
Blend one part ska with one part punk, add a Latina twist and a splash of eye candy, and you have got yourself the tasty alternative cocktail otherwise known as La Muneca Y Los Muertos. Guitarist/vocalist Muneca Osorio leads the groove, along with other Bay Area denizens David Simon-Baker on lead guitar and backing vocals, Kristin Lo Bianco on bass, Nick Lee on Trombone, Anthony Chavez on Trumpet and Matt Cohen on drums. With original music written and composed by Osorio and other band members, the band puts on an energetic show, exploring themes such as awareness, positive perspective, and realizing full human potential. The music even provides a sliver of education, songs are written in both English and Spanish.
