“We are excited to host our family, friends and community for the 7th year for LOCOS POR MARLEY! Every year this event is filled with positive energy and love that brings our community together,” comments Locos Por Juana.
This year’s line-up will include Miami’s favorite artists rappers Bernz & Wrekonize of ¡MAYDAY!, Grammy® and Latin Grammy® nominated, and the creator of “Soul Caribeño” COASTCITY, Tomas Díaz lead singer and percussionist from the Spam Allstars and Latin America’s realist conscientious rapper El B of Los Aldeanos, reggae pop musician Zander, mind-altering, bass-heavy, bone-shaking live performance from psychedelic hip-hop group Telekinetic Walrus, along side Cleaveland Jones who will be dishing his mix of samba dub soul funk, and much more!
The band recently collaborated with Grupo Fantasma and Ozomatli on the track “The Wall.” The track that swings from hard Latin funk to hip-hop, like a modern-day take on War or Mandrill. Although none of the artists involved are being overly political, “The Wall” questions the definition of an “immigrant” and what makes one ilegal. A topic close to Locos por Juana heart who have been strong advocates and have worked closely with The Hispanic Heritage Foundation (HHF) on the campaign #WeDreamAmerica for which they received the 2017 American Latino Influencer Award. “The Wall” was premiered on billboard.com and is available on all digital platforms.
Locos por Juana is ready to do what they do best, the hard gigging ensemble known for their energetic live performances, will be performing on February 7, 2019 in Gainesville, FL as part of Changeville and on February 9, 2019 at Vivo Beach Club in Puerto Rico sharing the stage with reggae icons Israel Vibration. Locos por Juana return to Miami for the 7th annual LOCOS POR MARLEY concert on February 16, 2019. The band is also working on a new album to be released this year.
