Join us on Saturday, May 30 at 9pm at Judys Bar & Restaurant (2212 14th St NW, Washington, DC) for the biggest hip-hop cumbia party of this season! Art, music, cultura and baile have always been part of the struggles for social justice and an important element for successful movement building!

Performing Live:

Olmeca - bilingual hip-hop artist Olmeca has been featured at the 2014 November Vigil at the gates of Fort Benning, Georgia, on NPR, Democracy Now, tv show “Sons of Anarchy” and most recently, the documentary, “Food Chains,” to name a few. He is an MC, producer, activist and one of the few artists who broke ground as an artist and advocate for human rights. He earns praises from the World Famous Wake Up Show (MTV Sway and Tech) a show that catapulted the careers of Eminem, Dilated Peoples, Jurassic 5, amongst others.

Salvajes – is classic, gritty, boombap type of Hip Hop with a mix of cultural, bilingualism, and political commentary. Salvajes is comprised of Joese Gloria, Mic Hempstead, IllNes Infection, Alpha Ready, and DJ Clouded Daily. They represent the Savage, the SALVAJES, which was once a word to describe our people as uncivilized and wild but now it is a word that describes their passion, love and skill in their lives and in the current state of HipHop.

La SalvadoReina - la reina is determined to bring together the better of her two worlds through music: the culture her immigrant family left behind in El Salvador and the new one they embraced in the DMV. You'll remember La SalvadoReina from the 2014 Spring Days of Action, where she MCed and performed at the SOA Watch concert. Her plight is to save the party, one Cumbia at a time.
