ELE/On The Scene Flashbacks from 2010 presents our reporter Leticia Reyes attended the BMI Verano Alternativa Music Showcase held at SOB’s in New York City. Featured in this years showcase were Punto G NYC, a Columbian latin rock funk band, Maria Isa, a Minnesota native of Puerto Rican descent performing her latest songs from her CD “Street Politics”. Maluca, a New York City Dominican by product and self proclaimed 1/2 pain in the ass, with her mix of club rhythms. Last but not least Bachaco, a mixture of Reggae, Columbian Cumbia, Ska and hip hop, sung in a combination of English and Spanish. All these elements combined make their music a multi cultural experience. ‘Support your local artists,’ says Leticia Reyes. Copyright © 2010 ELE Productions LLC. Visit: www.enlaescena.com
