Mexican Institute of Sound in Franconia's Amphitheatre
Mexican Institute of Sound (MIS) is an electronic music project created by Mexico City-based DJ and producer Camilo Lara. MIS is part of a growing Mexican electronica movement, encouraging fusions of folk and more traditional music with modern sounds.
Laras work has landed him a Grammy and 4 Latin Grammy nominations, and he has produced artists ranging from Los Angeles Azules (scoring the best-selling Mexican album of the last 25 years, 8 times diamond certified sales), Norah Jones, and Band of Horses. He has collaborated with a wide range of artists including Toots and the Maytals, Gogol Bordello, and Tom Tom Club. He hosts his own radio station on the best-selling game of all time, Grand Theft Auto V. He was the musical consultant for Pixars Coco where he even had a cameo, and his music has been featured in Narcos, Breaking Bad, Y Tu Mama Tambien, Californication, and Ugly Betty to name a few. Spanish newspaper El Pais named Lara as one of the 50 Most Influential People in Latin America and Quien Magazine named him one of the 50 People Who are Transforming Mexico.
Concert is free with admission to the 26th Annual Art & Artists Celebration at Franconia Sculpture Park; $25 tickets include two free drink tickets and a post-show meet and greet with Mexican Institute of Sound.
