One of the most legendary bands from the 90s, Vilma Palma e Vampiros, the ultimate part y band, will be gracing the stage of the Fillmore in Silver Spring on July 26. With several recent

visits to the area, Vilma is always a crowd favorite, playing their most recognized songs that always seem to remind the audience of their younger selves and the great time they used to have while playing their music as a soundtrack. Started in Rosario, Argentina in 1990, vocalist Mario “Pájaro” Gomez and guitarist Jorge Risso decided to start a project after their old band called Identikit did not get the reviews they desired. Along with drummer Carlos González, bassist Gerardo Pugliani, keyboardist Gustavo Sacchetti, and singers Karina Di Lorenzo and Natalia Moscariello, Vilma Palma was formed. Playing in night clubs in Rosario, the band gained notoriety and in 1992, they were signed on to record their first album, Vilma Palma e Vampiros. Perhaps one of their most recognizable songs, “La Pachanga”, was part of this first record and helped them achieve great commercial success not only in Argentina, but also in

other South American countries such as Chile, Colombia, Peru, Paraguay, and Uruguay, which they visited in the consequent tour. The album sold a million copies and earned the band gold and platinum awards. Their following album, 3980, recorded in 1993, included hits songs like “Auto Rojo”, “Mojada”, and “Me Vuelvo Loco Por Vos”. The album earned the band further notoriety, expanding their fame further to Mexico, Spain, and throughout Latin America earning them several musical awards including Premio Arce and Premio Prensario. After an extensive tour, the band went back to Rosario and recorded 1995’s Fondo Profundo, which earned them further accolades. The title track, “Fondo Profundo”, mixing pop and flamenco influences, became a hit and is a fine example of the band’s effort in the album to move forward in their musical style. Other hits from this album include “Voy a vos”, “Fernet con coca” and “Cazafantasma”. 1996’s Sepia, Blanco y Negro, Vilma Palma’s next recording, marked a new beginning for the band as the first album recorded under the band’s new label, EMI and recorded in the United States. Several albums later, and after waning enthusiasm for the band and musical

differences, the band decided to disband in 2001 after completing an extensive tour to promote their album 7. Gomez and Pugliani sought new opportunities in the United States and 2002, with a newly formed band, record 2002’s Vuelve A Comenzar, an album that gained renewed interest for Vilma Palma and became popular in Latin radio stations. The band later embarked in a large 2-year Que no Pare tour in 2003, visiting all of the Americas. In 2004, the band recorded yet another important album, Histeria, which saw the return many of Vilma Palma’s original line up including drummer Carlos González and singer Karina DiLorenzo. The band continues to record new albums, including a greatest hits live album in 2008, En Vivo Grandes Éxitos Buenos Aires. Their latest album is 2012’s Agarrate Fuerte, containing 15 new songs, including the title track, and mixes different rhythms like bossa and ska. Do not miss seeing this legendary band play live along with classic rock giants, Enanitos Verdes on July 26 at the Fillmore in Silver Spring. Tickets are on sale now at livenation.com █

ROCK

By: Ian Ramos By: Kala Fryman

La Vela Puerca got their start humbly, from a simple cassette recording of a street party amongst friends in Montevideo. This cassette was submitted to music contest in 1995 by frontman Sebastian Teyesera. The group won the contest and was awarded free recording hours, which became the base for their first studio release, Deskarado, in 1997. As described by the band in Deskarado’s liner notes, La Vela Puerca is, “a band that rests on a reggae, dreams of rebelliousness and plugs into ska.” As the 90s were a turning point for Uruguayan rock music, La Vela Puerca distinguished itself from the bands that emerged in the mid-80s following a 10-year military dictatorship. Replacing a common sentiment of “no future” echoed by bands in that era, La Vela began to dominate the local scene with a message that was still critical but more positive, varied and free of an oppressive air. As the band gained momentum and developing a strong fan base in the Rio de la Plata region in the early 2000s,

It’s amazing the satisfaction one gets from landing rock-star parking and playing a blend of reggae, cumbia, champeta, dancehall, and rock as loudly as possible. I’m beginning to sweat as I sit in the

they released their second album, “De Bichos y Flores” in 2001. Under the production of Gustavo Santaolalla, La Vela maintained its rock, ska and reggae roots and collaborated with well-known artists such as Leon Geico and Fernando Madina. Following two successful tours of Europe and attracting a large fan base in in Germany. Regardless of international success, La Vela Puerca still remains true to its beginnings and honors their first street concert every year on December 24th with a free concert in Montevideo, which has transformed into a big party complete with collecting toys to give to children on Christmas.

truck and listen to Miami based, “Locos Por Juana” with the engine off and the windows down. I’m reading the artist bio, learning about the two-time Grammy nominated outfit, all while dragging a steady stream of smoke from my e-cigarette. Their song “Feelin’ Good” is the backdrop to my mental image of intense sweating bodies coupled in musical ecstasy. This is what a Miami night must feel like, a tableau of soulful passion and fedoras.

La Vela Puerca has since released 6 studio albums, each tinged with ska and also transforming to other styles. The 2011 release “Piel y Hueso” is the band’s first double disc release, with one disc featuring acoustic songs exclusively. La Vela Puerca’s musical and lyrical transitions throughout their albums show us that they are not only representative of a fun party with friends or good-natured rebelliousness, but also thoughtfulness, introspection and nostalgia.

Locos Por Juana recorded their latest album, Somos de la Calle ( We’re From the Street), in a 1920’s style home converted to a recording studio in South Miami. The album enmeshes their Afro-Colombian roots with artists like ChocQuibTown and Palenke Soultribe. The title song “Somos de la Calle” delivers a personal history in lyrics and weaves the artist’s very souls via Spanish guitars and sensual trumpets.

If you’re looking for a fun way to spend and upcoming summer evening, check out La Vela Puerca on July 11 at the State Theater in Falls Church, VA. Tickets are available at www.tickeri.com. █

Locos Por Juana will be performing at Artisphere this July. A venue that inspired a terrifying, yet unique blend of cultures. Where one can find dixie cups of margaritas and trees clad in coats on the same block. Though, in retrospect, I realized I never did find the “Ballroom” where the “Locos Por Juana” will be performing with special guests Empresarios and DJ Mafe (Maracuyeah) on July 19th. Show starts at 8pm, tickets are $15. Try the website for tickets, don’t show up and attempt to bribe your way in. It doesn’t work. We tried. █

ALTERNATIVE

By: Rosario Garcia

“Me hiciste llorar hijo de tu….,” exclaims a friend of mine ( who shall remain anonymous to protect the innocent) out the window as we blast Carla Morrison’s cover of “No Viniste” in the car stereo while leaving a bar at 3am. Another girlfriend in the backseat and I join in on the chorus singing with such intensity you would think Carla Morrison herself is in the car with us as we sing along, “Que me hiciste llorar con tus recuerdos, pero no viiiiiniiissteee, no viiinissste hooooyyyy!!” For a moment we forget our lone male friend who sits in the backseat (terrified?) or amused recording the entire scene on his phone. Someone asks him why he’s recording and he says he wants to immortalize this intimate female bonding moment. To which my other girlfriend replies, “Exactly not everyone gets to see this.” I could say this was a one-time experience, but this literally happens anytime we all get in the car and blast Carla Morrison. It’s an experience not just reserved for women, it’s the witching hour in which everyone who has ever been heartbroken or in love (and maybe anyone who has had one too many drinks) wants to wallow away the sadness of love lost by playing music that speaks to their very soul. If anyone can make the heartbroken band together and scream obscenities directed

at anyone who has ever loved them, hurt them, and left them… that person is Carla Morrison! In 2009, a 23-year-old shy girl from Baja California with a tender yet powerful voice released her first self-produced EP titled “Aprendiendo a Aprender”. The heartfelt production created a buzz that got the attention of both media and fans alike. Lyrics like, “Esta soledad me esta quemando las pestañas, llenandome de telarañas y me pone a chillar…(This loneliness is burning my eyelashes, filling them with spiderwebs, and is making me cry)” made her an endearing artist who people from all walks of life could relate to. I swear sometimes I feel like Carla Morrison was taking notes during all my relationships to write a song about them. Carla didn’t waste the momentum from her first production and quickly released a second EP in 2010 titled, “Mientras tu Dormias”, which was produced by Natalia LaFourcade and featured the hits “Compartir”, “Tu Luz”, and a duet with Natalia LaFourcade in “Pajarito del Amor”. The production was nominated for a Latin Grammy and resulted in sold-out shows throughout Mexico. Fans were not the only ones in love with Carla Morrison’s voice, other artists quickly snapped her up to participate in tributes and duets including

the king of romantic ballads himself, Juan Gabriel, who invited Carla to perform on his 40th anniversary album. Now at the age of 26, Carla Morrison released her first full-length album in 2012 titled, “Dejenme Llorar” which has proven to be a smashing success. Hit tracks like, “Eres Tu” show maturity in both the music and the songwriting, a song that nails the intoxicating feeling one gets when falling in love, “Hoy desperté con ganas de besarte, ¿Que voy a hacer? Acariciarte, Enredarme a ti y no soltarte, eres tan embriagante, eres tu huu”. The title track, “Dejenme Llorar” is one best accompanied with a box of tissues, a bottle of tequila, and a best friend to keep you company (and/or to wipe away your tears). It’s clear from listening to Carla Morrison nonstop for the past few months that her music is much more than lyrics arranged with some catchy melodies, it’s relationship therapy! Her ability to describe (in excruciating detail) the pain, heartbreak, and beauty of being in love paired with her melodic voice is a talent that will keep her fans coming for more for years to come. Carla Morrison will be performing at the Howard Theatre in DC on July 8th, 2013. Tickets are $17 adv/ $20 day of show and are available on ticketmaster.com. █

SALSA

By: Sarah Berrie

REY RUIZ STARTED HIS CAREER AS A CHILD PERFORMER IN HIS NATIVE CUBA, BUT HAS SINCE BECOME AN INTERNATIONAL SALSA SENSATION. KNOWN BY LATIN MUSIC LOVERS WORLDWIDE AS “EL BOMBÓN DE LA SALSA” AND “EL ELVIS DE LA SALSA”, REY RUIZ HAS BEEN RECOGNIZED AS ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT SINGERS OF THE TROPICAL MUSIC GENRE. As a child Ruiz dreamed of becoming a salsa singer and was influenced by legends, such as Celia Cruz and the Puerto Rican Salsa group, El Gran Combo. He made his professional debut on Cuban television, singing children’s songs. With his parents’ support, he enrolled at Conservatorio de Música de la Habana, where he learned to play classic guitar. Ruiz has belonged to various orchestras such as La Riverside and Los Dadas and played with local music groups at various venues in Havana, including the

Habana Libre Hotel, formally the Havana Hilton, renamed after Fidel Castro’s revolution. Ruiz later joined the popular Cuban music group Cabaret Tropicana and in 1989, while on tour in the Dominican Republic, he decided not to return to Cuba, boldly seeking political asylum instead. Two years later, Ruiz struck out on his own, entering the Miami Salsa scene in the United States as a solo artist. Ruiz released his first album “Rey Ruiz” in 1992. The album, produced by Sony Records, went platinum and earned Ruiz a number of Baillboards and Lo Nuestro awards. The following year Ruiz released his second platinum album, “Mi Media Mitad” and was named the New Tropical/Salsa Artist of the Year at the Lo Nuestro Awards. Ruiz’s third album also went platinum. It included international hits such as “Estamos Solos” and “Vuelve de Nuevo Conmigo”, and is considered by salsa experts to be Ruiz’s most important release. With his career flourishing in the United States, he continued to gain international recognition, reaching the top of the Billboards. Rey Ruiz is proud of his Cuban heritage and of representing Cuba to the rest of the world. His dream

is to one day return to Cuba to sing to the people of his homeland. In September of 2010, he returned to Cuba for the first time since his departure for a vacation with his family. Although he plans on staying in Miami, in a recent interview with Marlon Becerra in Colombia, Ruiz expressed sadness about not being able to return to Cuba, and his dream of one day being able to perform for the Cuban people. He confessed, while tearing up, “Sería el momento mas lindo de mi vida” (It would be the greatest moment of my life). Ruiz’s last album “Mis favoritas”, released in 2011 is largely a collection of songs from previous albums, including “No me acostumbro”, and “Amiga”. Ruiz is currently working on a new album, which is expected to be released this year. The album will include his new hit single, “Esta noche si,” which came in second place in the Tropical Billboard charts. Rey Ruiz is currently on tour and will be performing at The Palace in Woodbridge, VA on Friday, July 26th at 9:00pm. Tickets are $35.00 and available via www. tickeri.com. █

URBAN

By: Jose Vasquez

one of us gets to choose our family, but as Javid David Álvarez Fernández would soon find out, sometimes family can be a blessing. Born in San Juan, Puerto Rico in the district of Río Piedras, Javid grew up satisfying his appetite for music by listening to the quick-witted rhymes of A Tribe Called Quest, and the distinct lyrical delivery of Busta Rhymes. With his affinity for urban music and locality in Puerto Rico, an island deluged with culture and music, Javid naturally settled on a genre of music that coalesced salsa, hip hop and dance hall into one— reggaeton. Javid, who is known artistically as J. Alvarez, first heard his voice amplified over a microphone at the age of twelve. He stood in front of a throng of spectators, composed mostly of students and teachers at the Luis Muñoz Marin School, singing his song “Lo Que Ella Trae.” In his performance, he paid homage to his predecessors, reggaetoneros Tego Calderón and Ñejo & Dálmata. In 2009, serendipity struck. J. Alvarez met DJ Nelson, the founder of the record label Flow Music—all thanks to his cousin. The two established a working rapport, and DJ Nelson signed J. Alvarez to Flow Music, the same record label that Ñejo & Dálmata had signed to years before.

Within months, J. Alvarez released his debut mixtape El Dueño Del Sistema, which inaugurated his musical career, and served to build his fan base. His fan base and success continue to grow, as evidenced by his reaching 1 million followers on Twitter in May. His success doesn’t stop there as his most recent album Otro Nivel De Musica: Reloaded received a 2012 Latin Grammy Award nomination for Best Urban Music Album. He celebrated his 1 millionth Twitter follower by giving back to his fans and releasing a new single, entitled “La Cita.” In June, he reached another milestone: 50,000 digital downloads of his single “La Pregunta.” In spite of his musical accolades, J. Alvarez plans to take a break from the industry and perform at fewer venues by the time he turns 33. His goal is to work diligently now in order to later dedicate more time to his wife and four children because he does not want to miss out on spending holidays like Mother’s Day and Father’s day with his family. At the moment, J. Alvarez is working on a new studio album De Camino Pa’ La Cima—an album that is sure to be well received. His ability to produce authentic reggaeton— when a number of reggaetoneros have deviated from the traditions of reggaeton, fusing pop elements into the genre—keeps his fans devoted. Fortunately, J. Alvarez admirers still have a chance to see him perform—in fact a couple chances—before his hiatus. J. Alvarez will be at The Palace in Woodbridge, VA on Aug. 30. Admission is priced at $25, and the venue is one of the largest nightclubs in Woodbridge, so come out and enjoy the show! █

In pop music, the way meaning gets passed on, changed (and exchanged), from generation to generation is truly reassuring for those who believe in the power of art to maintain and define humane continuity. Take the Andean-folk based “Llorando Se Fue” -- first recorded in 1981 by Bolivian group Los Kjarkas as a romantic ballad-- and the route it follows in multiple iterations until

eventually being repurposed by modern Latin pop star Don Omar as a striking example of pop’s durable mutability. In 1984, Peru’s Cuarteto Continental transformed “Llorando Se Fue” into a dance track with stunningly effective cumbia arrangements whose musical core remains largely unchanged in the song’s later incarnations (Kaoma’s “Lambada”, Don Omar’s “Taboo”). French-Brazilian Kaoma’s “Lambada” was a massive hit in 1989. A music video depicting a forbidden interracial teenage romance, which accompanied “Lambada’s” release, meant visuals integrated with the song’s original meanings. This demonstrates how artistic continuity can layer cultural meaning to expand >>>>>>>


WWW.KESTADC.COM

the emotive possibilities of pop art. The motifs of love and tragedy-- older than Romeo and Juliet, older than Pyramus and Thisbe-- are constantly resuscitated within our folk art. In 2010, Don Omar recognized something eternal in “Llorando Se Fue’s” yearning lyrical imagery and the deep sense of tragedy evoked by the song’s instrumentation. His contribution (“Taboo”) to “Llorando Se Fue’s” continuity is the most palpably joyous in the pantheon. “Taboo’s” music video contains a class-resentment tinged twist, as well as, an allusion to Kaoma’s “Lambada” music video-recreating the iconic scene of a white teen girl and black teen boy running across the beach to embrace-- which is remarkable for the way it expands the song’s emotive effect through “Taboo’s” self-contained narrative while also tapping into our cultural memory (Chico & Roberta, the child duet who played the love interests in Kaoma’s “Lambada” video). Nicknamed El Rey (in the custom of pinnacle cultural pop icons like Michael Jackson, Lebron James, Jay-Z and Kanye West), Puerto Rican born and raised William Omar Landron Rivera went from active church member at the Protestant Iglesia Evangelica Restauracion en Cristo in Bayamon to pop star and actor. Like his contemporary Daddy Yankee, Don Omar’s career trajectory has flowed seamlessly from pure dembow reggaeton superstar recognized across Latin America to urban Latin pop sensation worldwide. In doing so, Omar has expanded the emotional effect and impact of his artistry. El Rey’s early reggaeton hits (“Pobre Diabla”, “Dile”, “Reggaeton Latino”) showcased his

ability to empathize and connect, as well as, his ability to make people dance (collaborating with the excellent producer Eliel didn’t hurt). His repurposing of a Latin American pop and folk classic like “Llorando Se Fue” is an example of the transcendent fusion that can occur when a talented commercial artist takes his art seriously and understands the spiritual and psychological desires of his people. His uneven 2012 release Don Omar Presents MTO2: New Generation evidences Omar’s broadened emotional spectrum in its two biggest successes and standout tracks: single releases “Hasta Que Salga el Sol” and “Dutty Love”. While not destined to become enormous megahits like his remaking of Lucenzo’s “Danza Kuduro”, the MTO2 singles are great in their own right and their own way. “Dutty Love’s” slow-paced dembow is movingly tender in a perhaps groundbreaking way. Even the brilliant “No Me Dejes Solo” (one of the earliest and best examples of insightful vulnerability in the reggaeton genre) couldn’t completely shed its macho hard edge in the generous and truthful way “Dutty Love” does. “Hasta Que Salga El Sol” continues in the joyous vein of Omar’s own “Danza Kuduro” and “Taboo”. “Hasta Que Salga El Sol’s” hopeful, ecstatic celebration unearths a cultural truth belonging to Latin music: the joy often expressed in Latin music is of the hard-earned variety that underlies suffering. Thus, “Hasta Que Salga El Sol” is shadowed by the realization of an eventual end to the party.

/ 15

The great “Danza Kuduro’s” massive success speaks to Omar’s ability to tap into and release the vitality of his pop audience. Don Omar’s ability to connect with all types of fans with Danza Kuduro, surpasses even that of his contemporary Daddy Yankee. Don Omar’s musical achievement with Danza Kuduro (which differs little in arrangement from the Lucenzo original) is not as significant as the global, pan-Latin unity Omar marshaled and realized in creating Danza Kuduro. Similar to the success of Fast Five (in which “Danza Kuduro” as part of the soundtrack, and Don Omar and reggaetonero Tego Calderon as actors memorably feature), Danza Kuduro was an inspiring example of the possibilities of state of the modern music landscape-- global, multicultural, full of life and joined across various mediums (movie and music). Don’t miss Don Omar in his only club performance of the year. On Friday, July 26th Don Omar performs at Cococabana Bar & Grill (2031A University Boulevard, Hyattsville MD 20783).

Now in it’s 5th edition the popular DC Bachata Congress is back for more and will take place from August 8th to August 12th at the Hilton Hotel in Washington DC. The event expects to draw over 5,000 people from 48 US states and 29 countries. I caught up with the Annual DC Bachata Congress organizers, Lee El Gringuito and Kat La Gata on behalf of Kesta Magazine to find out more about what they have in store for us this year. KH: First things first, how did the Annual DC Bachata Congress begin? Lee: I (Lee) created the DC Bachata Congress in 2009 because I wanted to bring attention to a dance that was primarily being practiced by the Latin community. Together with my dad, my coordinator Loida and myself we were able to pull off the 1st Annual DC Bachata Congress which was the 3rd Bachata Congress to ever be organized in North America. The Congress turned out to be a great success. I literally had to take off two weeks afterwards to recover.

KH: How would you say the Annual DC Bachata Congress has evolved since then? Lee: The Congress has grown greatly over the past five years. Kat became involved in the second year and since then we have worked very hard to bring the hottest bands and instructors in the industry to our event year after year. While the Congress was initially created to promote bachata, it has grown to include other dances such as Kizomba and Zouk. We are very proud to be hosting the 1st DC Kizomba Congress in unison with the 5th Annual DC Bachata Congress. The event will be led by Kwenda Lima, one of Europe´s top Kizomba instructors, and will provide over 35 hours of Kizomba workshops. Funny enough, the 1st DC Kizomba Congress is also the 3rd Kizomba Congress to be held in North America. KH: What is special about this year´s DC Bachata Congress? Lee: This year for our 5th Annual Bachata Congress we are really planning to go all out and think outside of the box of traditional dance congresses. In addition to putting on close to 100 dance related workshops for a variety of levels (beginners, intermediate and advanced) and dances (urban bachata, traditional bachata, bachatango, kizomba, zouk, salsa etc..), we will also be hosting educational workshops for people who are interested in the dance and entertainment industry. These workshops will contain panels of lead DJs and promoters to teach participants the tricks to putting on stellar events. We are also opening our doors to local high schools and elementary schools

to participate in select workshops that will be taught by the youth world salsa champions’ ´ Baila Conmigo´ of Colombia. In regards to the concerts, we are also pushing the envelope by hosting a ´Divas of Bachata´ evening on Friday, August 9th to highlight the female vocal talent that exists in a very male dominated industry. On Saturday, August 10th we are bringing big names from a variety of Latin musical genres including Puerto Rican Power who have been signing salsa for over 30 years, Fuego- a lead merengue and reggaeton artist and Leslie Grace- a modern bachata sensation. KH: Why would you recommend people attend the Annual DC Bachata Congress? Lee: With 12 ballrooms open for instruction during the day and 8 ballrooms open for social dancing in the evenings, I assure you that you will find a ballroom to your liking with outstanding instructors and dancers. In addition to the fantastic artists that we are bringing, you will also have the chance to see instructors and dance groups perform and meet people from all over the world. This is truly an event not to be missed! For more information on the 5th Annual DC Bachata Congress/1st DC Kizomba Congress please visit: www.dcbachata.com █

FOOD

By: Alexandra Lucia-Miller

Fuego sits on the corner of 2800 Clarendon Boulevard near The Market Common shopping center. The restaurant boasts an open sun-drenched atmosphere, fifty foot bar, outdoor patio, brightly colored cascading sculptures (reminiscent of Aztec architecture), a winding staircase and beautiful open kitchen. While glancing into the kitchen, patrons should wave hello to executive Chef Jeff Tunks and Chef de Cuisine Alfredo Solis. Chef Jeff Tunks is one of three members of the Passion Food Hospitality group and is the mastermind behind the delicious cuisine of Acadiana, Ceiba, Passion Fish, DC Coast, District Commons, Burger Tap and Shake, as well as, most recently, Fuego Cocina and Tequileria. Tunks personally mentored Solis to create the menu, while Solis also looked to his Mexican roots for inspiration. The menu has several types of Tacos, Tortas, Small Plates, Entrees and most impressively, 120 different types of tequila. One look at the menu guarantees countless innovative and tasty traditional Mexican treats. A spacious atmosphere and lively crowd are just the start to your dining experience at Fuego. Once guests are seated, it’s best to start with a mix of Botanas, which are delicious shareable appetizers. The Ceviche de Pescado is a light and fresh dish for

anyone daring enough to try raw fish. The use of Tilapia is a safer option than the Coctél de Mariscos, which is a similar treat that includes a mix of octopus and shrimp. Ask for a side of their spiciest salsa to bring out the fresh Habanero and lime. The Sopes de Carnitas are an equally delicious small plate of slow roasted pork topped with a zesty Sour Orange Habanero Crema that adds a unique punch of flavor, while the black beans round out the dish nicely. Fuego also boasts a huge selection of Tacos. If you’re adventurous, the Lengua (beef tongue) will cleanse your palate and certainly fill you up. The traditional Pollo (chicken) Taco has a simplistic and mild balance of lettuce, slow cooked chicken and Queso Fresco. By far, the Chiles Rellenos Divorciados are a delicious Especialidad de la Casa (special of the house) and Fuego has mastered a technique that keeps the dish crisp and never soggy. The cocktail and tequila list is one of the most exciting components of Fuego’s menu. The Flight of Three Tequilas is the best opportunity to mix and match. You can choose between Blanco, Reposado, Añejo, Extra Añejo, and Especial. The staff are knowledgeable and will be sure to answer any questions you have about the different aging stages, colors, sugar and agave content in each brand. If you’re interested in a summery frozen treat, the Frozen Hibiscus Margarita is a delicate twist on the original that combines Sauza Gold, and triple sec infused with hibiscus extract. If you’re looking for a drink with a kick, the Mala Suerte will certainly tingle your tongue with a combination of Habanero infused

syrup, Hornitos Reposado, grapefruit and lime juice.

owadays your schedule is likely filling up with down-home backyard barbeques, Sunday brunch at outdoor spots throughout the city, and of course Fourth of July celebrations. Naturally, it’s a great time to rock red, white, and blue ensembles during these festivities. One word of advice: reserve head-to-toe red, white, and blue stars and stripes for RFK stadium. If you decide to wear something with an American flag design make sure it has a bit of a twist. For instance, an oversized, lightweight scarf with a vintage American flag design is a great accessory that can be worn as a stylish shawl on

those breezier summer nights. Another option is to sport a monochromatic flag design. Even a black and white star spangled banner makes a strong statement. Using what you already have at home, try wearing a red and white striped tank top underneath a white blazer with blue denim. Many of you may have accumulated a sizable collection of denim shorts that you could repurpose to fit this trend. If you’re at a loss, there are many examples of impressive DIY red, white, and blue shorts found on Etsy.com. █

LOCAL TALENT

/ JULY

2013

By: Ellen Flores

Here at Kesta, we love to support our local talent. Entertainment, venues, food or music, when its home grown in the DMV, Kesta will always let you know about it first. This month, we want you to

know about Latin Fusion band Zakke. Check out why their musical fusion is so fun and where the heck a name like Zakke comes from. Grab a seat and get ready to party with the musical fusion of Zakke. KM: How did Zakke start? What’s the story? Zakke: We’ve been together since 2011. We sometimes joke that we should have called ourselves “La Banda De Craig” because we all found each other through Craigslist. The original members of the band were Max, Jorge (Espinoza), Felipe and Santiago. We were passionate about music and wanted to form a band where fusion, fun and satire were at the center of our sound. Time passed and some members left the band. Right now, Zakke is: Max, Felipe, Omar, Jorge (Carranza) & Manuel.

the drums and his craziness; each one has their own world but they fit perfectly to add to the fusion. Our differences and laid-back personalities allow us to fuse our styles and have fun doing it. KM: Tell us more about your fusion. Zakke: We practice every Sunday at Max’s house, it’s an all day event and it starts with a huge breakfast. The key to our fusion is to let the music flow and not put any barriers up. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to put their ideas in the hat and make suggestions, we never say no to each other. As we practice and fine tune our music we realize that our fusion works. Listen to “Crimen Y Castigo” it goes from Salsa to Ska to Pop in a way that is natural and catchy. It’s a heavy fusion, but it works. When we create our music, we’re

having a blast and that’s exactly what we want the listeners to feel. The intention of our music is to always have a good time. KM: What’s with all the sarcasm in your lyrics? Zakke: Let’s face it, none of us are quinceañeros. When you have nothing else to loose, sarcasm is a defense mechanism that we all use to get through life. Our songs let everyone relate on some level and also laugh at the craziness and randomness that life has. KM: Where did Zakke come from? Zakke: One day we were all together picking names for the band. Everyone said random names and none stuck. A few beers and hours later we got tired and just said

“Ah, f*#k it.” One of the guys said why not name it that? We all laughed and started saying variations of the phrase and ended at “sake” but instead of the drink, we added with the a Z and double K. Like our music, our name was a product of our “fusión malcriada.” KM: What’s next for Zakke? Zakke: Our next shows are on July 11 with La Vela Puerca, July 13 with Miki Gonzalez and Bareto both at The State Theatre. You can get all our music and keep up to date with us at: facebook. com/zakkerock, www.zakkerock.com and www.reverbnation.com/zakke. █

TV PERSONALITY

By: Aline Barros

on’t expect the weather report to ever be the same after watching Telemundo’s weather anchor Cristina Caicedo Smit’s announcements. The Colombian journalist, a graduate from Universidad del Norte en Barranquilla, moved to Washington D.C. five years ago, and has been enchanting the Latino audience with her charisma and enthusiastic personality ever since. “I was always very interested in telling stories,” says Cristina, who remembers listening attentively to her mother’s stories as a young girl (only to be the author herself a few days later). “I would just tell the same story with a different ending,” she says. The anchor puts her storytelling attitude to work with her Telemundo viewers. “I decided on journalism because I think it is a beautiful career...my passion for storytelling was the main thing that made me choose journalism,” says Cristina. She provides last minute reports for “Una Buena Mañana” listeners, and shares tips on how to take important precautions during significant hurricanes such as Sandy or tornado threats. Meanwhile it is easy to see why viewers love Cristina so much. Her Facebook and Twitter pages are full of fans thanking the anchor and showing support. Before embracing the weather news, Cristina worked in the marketing department also in Telemundo Washington where she contributed to organizing events and campaigns for the Hispanic population in the Nation’s Capitol. Holding that position only furthered her interest for entertainment reporting. Now when she is not keeping the community up-to-date with the latest weather information, Cristina presents a special segment titled, “Entre Estrellas,” every Friday. In this segment, she has interviewed acclaimed names in the Latino entertainment industry such as Daddy Yankee, David Bisbal, Franky Negron, and Juanes.

The weather anchor is also in the postproduction stages of a mini-series titled “Cambio Climático, Verdad o Mito” airing July 1, 2, and 3 where audiences will be delighted to see how extreme weather is affecting people’s everyday lives. Cristina explains she was always very interested on the topic, and decided to produce a series where storytelling could lead the way to break down what’s going on with mother nature and who is causing it. “Sometimes I think people don’t really know what the problem is,” says the journalist. She has been working on this project since the beginning of the year and has experts, such as University of Maryland professors, helping to make the best series possible. “It is learning as well as putting a difficult topic in simple words...it takes a lot of time because you have to write the story, produce, and you have to edit...I feel like I have been working like crazy for the past three months on this series,” Cristina states. She adds, “I think its something that everyone needs to see. From children to adults” In her personal life, Cristina is very committed to family and friends. She lives with her husband and stepdaughter and tells of how much she loves them. “It is a lot fun (to have a stepdaughter) and a lot of responsibility as well...but I love her very much,” adds the reporter who also enjoys dancing, working out and cooking, just don’t call her to clean the dishes she jokes, “I love cooking, but not cleaning the dishes.”

Cristina is a woman who inspires responsibility and tenderness, and someone who is secretly in love with Greek food and soap operas. She’s someone that loves being with people and knowing that she is making a difference in the audience’s lives. Cristina urges her fans to reach out to her on both nice and bad weather days, “I would love for people to send pictures and so I can put them on the news,” she concludes. Don’t forget to catch Cristina Caicedo Smit do what she does best at Telemundo Washington, Monday through Friday, from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m. or find her on social media platforms at facebook.com/Cristina-Caicedo-SmitTelemundo-Washington or Tweeting @CristinaWZDC. █

ALBUM REVIEW

Latin Rock Invasion 2013 By: Rosario Garcia

En Washington DC si hay rock en español! A total of 8 bands turned this statement into a reality on Friday, June 7th when they electrified the legendary Howard Theatre more than the fierce thunderstorms that rolled out of the city prior to this amazing show. Ranging in musical styles from Lazaro’s pop rock to La Rina’s groove metal there was something for everyone. Recent formations like Elvis E and Wahyoyo shared the stage with DC Latin rock pioneers Machetres and Versus. The night was rounded out nicely with more energetic metal courtesy of Sentius. In between sets, there was a special commemorative moment to recognize DC’s very own reggae rock band Nayas, for their accomplishments and contributions to the DC Latin Rock scene for the past decade. It was overall a successful evening that included everything from slow ballads to moshing and stage diving (courtesy of Lilo Gonzalez from Machetres). The good thing about the night is that since only 8 bands were featured, there are still plenty of DC Latin rock bands left to host a Latin Rock Invasion Live part 2 in the near future. Unlike the cicadas taking over the northeast, this is one invasion fans are anxiously waiting for! █

A Night to Remember with Juanes @ Wolf Trap By: Ellen Flores

With a 14-piece band including a full wind section that gave his songs a very tropical and summery flair, Juanes stepped on stage to the tune of “Fíjate Bien”. Classics like “La Paga”, “La Camisa Negra” and “A Dios Le Pido” got the crowd on their feet dancing and singing along with every word. Juanes kept us on our toes with new songs and some cover songs that added another layer to the show. Bob Marley’s classic “Could You Be Loved” received the Juanes touch and Joe Arroyo’s masterpiece “Rebelión” was performed with gusto by the Colombian superstar while fans danced euphorically.

By: Juan Leon

Being caught in between-- genres, identities, styles, conflicts, wars-- is the subject of Panteon Rococo’s latest: Ni Carne Ni Pescado. Opening track “Hostilidades” surveys the hostile nature of the modern world and responds with old-fashioned punk vibrancy and Latin verve. Traversing disparate genres, ideas, and moods, the freewheeling ska/punk/reggae explosion of “Hostilidades” achieves the type of frisson generated by legendary 2 Tone ska band The Specials. The current of personal/political defiance (a rallying cry for life against the inhumane absurdity of the world) which characterized The Specials runs throughout Ni Carne Ni Pescado. For that reason, Panteon Rococo’s cover of The Specials’ “Gangsters” is especially apropos (and thematically even more so in light of the Obama administration’s recent NSA scandal). Panteon Rococo’s sly, peculiarly Latin playfulness saves their message from preachiness. This approach also maintains the freshness of the group’s style and keeps them from retreading the ground of their New Wave predecessors. Always moving, Panteon Rococo travels from ska-metal (“Remmi Demmi”) to ballad (“La Rubia Y El Demonio”) to electro-cumbia (“Dejala Tranquila/Para Que Bailen Las Muchachonas Mix”) in an attempt to prove boundaries and limits don’t matter as much as music and people. █

No elaborate stage setups or crazy light shows were needed because Juanes and his music shined for themselves. Performing with his heart on his sleeve (and new look to compliment) Juanes’ charisma took over as he walked offstage and into the crowd to shake hands and take pictures with some lucky fans in the pit section. As the show ended with a spectacular encore and the crowd began to disperse it was clear Juanes gave his all on stage and fans left with a night to remember. █

Victor Manuelle at the Palace By: Sarah Barrie

Puerto Rican Salsa singer, Victor Manuelle, “el sonero de la juventud” celebrates his almost twenty year journey in his music career with his concert, “Casi 20, un recorrido por la historia”, which he performed on Friday, June 21st at The Palace in Woodbridge, VA. Doors opened at 9pm and shortly thereafter Giancarlo Rodriguez and his orchestra, La Tremenda, entertained the crowd. Florescent lights of all colors lit up the 10,000 sq. ft. venue and as the night went on, the dance floor began to fill quickly. All around people were showing off as they danced to rhythmic beats of salsa, bachata, cumbia and reggaeton. The crowd danced for hours as they anxiously awaited the appearance of Victor Manuelle, who took the stage shortly after midnight. As soon as he played the first note of his fan favorite, “Tengo Ganas” (I’m in the mood) the crowd went wild and began to scream and cheer with excitement. Victor Manuelle serenaded the crowd with his hits such as: Si Tú Me Besas” (If you kiss me), “Me Llamaré Tuyo” (I’ll call myself yours), “Ella Lo Que Quiere Es Salsa” ( What she wants is Salsa), and many others. The crowd stood mesmerized as they took pictures and sang along. The tropical beats of the Conga drums, maracas, and the guiro could be heard throughout the night. As Victor Manuelle brought his performance to a close, it was obvious by the crowd’s reaction that the concert was a huge success. █

Produced by Grammy winner Adrian Quesada, Natalia Clavier’s debut Lumen sees the Buenos Aires raised songstress’ soulful, unplaceable voice buoyed by a Thievery Corporation influenced (she was their touring vocalist) sonic palate, although, Lumen is less droning and hypnotic than traditional Thievery Corp. Musically, Clavier’s debut is breezy and brassy with world music/Latin accents-- some tracks feel tinged by Mark Ronsonesque production. At its best Lumen has a hint of the stylish, modern soulfulness that distinguished Amy Winehouse’s short, fiery career. Though she doesn’t nearly reach the heights of the power and ecstasy Winehouse was able to communicate through yearning and pain, Clavier utilizes her own set of cultural tools to at times striking effect. Generating more emotional momentum when she sings in Spanish, “El Tren” and “Volar” make an especially lovely couplet at Lumen’s center. Overall, Lumen is pleasant music in the vein of Bebel Gilberto. █
