Tip Sheet: Debajo Del Agua

Who: Debajo Del Agua

In Their Words: "Formed in Denver, Colorado, Debajo is composed of musicians from Chile, Peru, El Salvador, Mexico and the States. We fuse a vast diaspora of styles incorporating elements of hip hop, Andean music, salsa, samba, cumbia, reggae, and more. Our music is a reflection of the multicultural fruits growing from the southern tip of Tierra del Fuego to the northern tip of Turtle Island. Our music and politics come together to celebrate our differences and similarities united in a common vision of harmony, justice, and equality."

Sounds Like:The Gypsy Kings backing a trio of forceful MCs spitting tongue-twisting, politically-charged, bilingual trilingual rhymes with a tangible, fiery conviction. Or Ozomatli's more interesting long lost cousins.

Our Take:Muy caliente! Debajo's warming up for the white hot Flobots at the Fox next Friday, April 25 -- talk about a perfect fit.
