One of the country’s foremost independent record labels, ESL Music, hosted a night of Latin, electronic and world music at Ruta Maya. The night was a showcase of ESL’s artists, including Austin’s own world/funk band Ocote Soul Sounds. Producer/DJ Ursula 1000 had guest MCs in Ms.G and Tee Double to get the party going, which climaxed with a dozen fans dancing on stage. Hard Proof opened the night with their Afrobeat grooves. Cilantro Boombox‘s fusion of funk, pop and world music got people moving their feet.
