Los Rakas are a Panamanian rap duo by way of Oakland, California. No stranger to Austin, the group was a featured performer on this year’s Pachanga Latino Music Festival and was here in March for South by Southwest. The Latin Alternative Music Conference “Discovery” award winners will soon be back on the road for a touring with the incredible Ozomatli and later with Mr. Vegas in support of their upcoming double album titled Soy Raka Presents: ‘El Negrito Dun Dun’ & ‘Ricardo’.
During Pachanga Fest our friends at Blastro2 worked with our editor-in-chief, Ian Morales, on some great video coverage and on camera interviews. Morales caught up with Los Rakas at Fiesta Gardens for a brief chat about life as underground stars, their infamous Raka Love EP and their love for their home city. Watch the video interview below.
