This past weekend at the Supersonico Music Festival, Los Rakas once again demonstrated why they are one of the bands never-to-be-missed on any lineup! When the time came for Los Rakas to hit the stage, fans rushed the indoor stage and could be seen and heard chanting “Los Rakas” in anticipation of their set. During their first song the ballroom was nearly full, however by the beginning of their third song, Los Rakas successfully managed to pack the room like no other! Truly a force to be reckoned with, Los Rakas have a unique ability to mix true root Hip-Hop, Dancehall, Reggae, Afro-Latin, and Electronic beats with prolific lyrics and relevant bi-cultural influences that are in line with the current state of the music industry.
The Panama born, Oakland,CA raised duo joined by their full band gave a stellar performance playing songs from their current album, “El Negrito Dun Dun y Ricardo”. Tracks such as; “No Tan Listo”, “Africana”, “Pegaito,” y “Siente La Musica” made the crowd go wild, culminating in the highlight of the performance, the new version of “We Them Rakas”.
