Nacional Records recording artist Pacha Massive returned to Austin in May to perform at the third annual Pachanga Latino Music Festival at Fiesta Gardens. This New York based collective’s signature sound is a funky bilingual fusion of dub and electronica with Latin rhythms like cumbia and palo. Pacha Massive is touring in support of their latest release, If You Want It, which is the follow-up to the group’s critically-acclaimed debut, All Good Things.
Austin Vida teamed up with local video producers Blastro to bring you an exclusive on-camera interview with the band. In the interview, we talk about If You Want It, the band’s unique fusion of sounds and how they came together. We also meet their new lead female vocalist, Monica Rodriguez, who is also a member of the New York City-based group Zigmat. Watch the interview below, and stay tuned for more of our Pachanga Fest videos, also co-presented with Blastro.
