La Yegros & dj rAt of Maracuyeah DC at Tropicalia!
La Yegros has been a powerful presence on Buenos Aires' underground scene for many years. Her vibrant sound, unique voice, and larger-than-life performance presence, gives her the point-of-view of an artist with South American flair, but a global mindset.

La Yegros resides in the pulsing heart of cosmopolitan Buenos Aires, but her family hails from the tropical climates found in the rural rain forests of the north, bordering Brazil. She received classical, conservatory training in music and got her break when she played before thousands as part of the De La Guarda experimental theatre.

"Viene de Mi" recording sessions were overseen by Argentina's groundbreaking producer and composer King Coya, who saw in her something "sharp and high, wild and aboriginal".

Confident and vibrant in approach, she's been championed by MTV Iggy, as well as by Fader Magazine, who hailed La Yegros' "raw urgency while sounding completely relaxed and conversational". Listening to her sing, there's the swagger of a Kelis or even Jamaican dancehall combined with the indomitable homespun wisdom of a vintage soul queen, such as Laura Lee or Angie Stone.

There's a sass to her singing, at once fresh and urgent yet aged in experience and attitude, that cuts through the male-dominated contemporary cumbia, drawing on both deep folk traditions and cutting edge beats.

It's a move that hasn't gone unnoticed. As Time Out said recently, "La Yegros is at the helm of no ordinary revolutionIt's a revolution you can dance to."

*******************************************************************

Washington DC's Maracuyeah collective is internationally known for rockin mixtape-style Pan-Latin-to-the-Future sounds that shake crowds, and mix in traditional & popular tropical rhythms that founders Djs Mafe & rAt grew up with. Their dj sets feature everything from vintage chicha recordings, cumbias rebajadas, 3ball gems from 2017, dancehall, 80s rock en español, electro-cumbia sensations, tropical booty bangers and their very own flavor- quinceañera bass.

Maracuyeah is also a crew of amigxs who organize quarterly tropical underground events in DC- featuring weirdo Latin independent artists complemented by always (re)mixed dance fiestas.
