Oakland-based hip hop duo Los Rakas are coming back to Austin this Saturday, August 11, to perform at headlining show at Flamingo Cantina. The “pana-baynian” cousins were in Austin for South By Southwest in March, winning over critics and new fans alike. Their music is a Spanish language mix of grimey street style rap, club jams and R&B inspired love anthems. Los Rakas are one of the most diverse hip artists in the scene and a live act not to be missed.
Opening for Los Rakas is the “barrio big band” from San Antonio, Bombasta. The nine-piece Latin fusion band mixes styles and instrumentations effortlessly as their lyrics travel between Spanish and English. Often referred to as San Antonio’s answer to Ozomatli, Bombasta are known for energetic live shows and being socially conscious.
