Local Band Pistolera has a new album and NYC show:
PISTOLERA'S NEW ALBUM "EN ESTE CAMINO" OUT NOW!
CD RELEASE SHOW SATURDAY, AUGUST 9
at Central Park Summerstage, 3pm, Free
with Kinky and others
The album is already #8 on the CMJ Latin Radio Charts and received the following review from Billboard Magazine!
"Pistolera frontwoman Sandra Velasquez has not given herself an easy assignment: write searching, often politically conscious lyrics in Spanish with traditional Latin music instrumentation.....the results are often glorious and galvanizing ("Guerra," a translation of Bob Marley's "War," couldn't be more relevant). The musicianship is superb here, and it's a pleasure to listen to a whole museum of brass, bongos, congas, caxixi, maracas and pandereta incorporated beautifully into a sound that doesn't fit neatly into any genre." - Billboard
PS we are HUGE fans so if you haven't seen the band go check it out!
