As a mini-countdown to the ¡Pachanga! Latino Music Festival THIS SATURDAY popolio is featuring 3 ¡Pachanga! Artists in pop quizzes Wednesday through today.
Maneja Beto [Bobby Garza] pop quiz
David Garza pop quiz
* * *
Last, but certainly not least, is Charanga Cakewalk. This Austin-based artist (né Miguel Ramos) brews various distinct Latin rhythms (Tejano, merengue, and , prominently, cumbia), throws in a dash of lounge, and sprinkles in some electronic beats to create a jambalaya of sound. And that’s just for starters. Yesterday’s pop quizzer, David Garza, has guested on his work. His lyrical content adds to an experience that becomes somewhat of a sonic stream of consciousness. He plays the Plaza Stage at 8:15PM (at Fiesta Gardens). Check the ¡Pachanga! Fest site here for more 411.
