The FIGat7th Holiday Sessions Schedule:
DECEMBER 5 – RAQUEL RODRIGUEZ
Los Angeles singer Raquel Rodriguez and her band play soul how it was always meant to be
played. Their 2013 full-length debut Miss Me boasts a collection of impassioned, invigorating, and
irresistible songs that are as fresh as they are fiery. Raquel's song "Already Beat" is in the season
6 premiere of FX's hit show, Sons of Anarchy.
DECEMBER 12 – ETHIO CALI
Ethio Cali is a Los Angeles-based Ethio-Jazz ensemble who's sublime sound is inspired by the golden age of Ethiopian music of the 1960s and 70s, filtered through a lens that is uniquely Los Angeles. Acknowledging the diverse musical foundations of Ethio-Jazz, the ensemble also draws inspiration from the rhythmic and melodic textures of Sudan, Somalia, Ghana, and Colombia.
DECEMBER 19 – SUBSUELO
LA Weekly calls Subsuelo the “Best Party in East LA … part hip-hop scene, part cumbia club” and URB Magazine describes it as “the melting pot between cumbia, electro, tropical funk, moombahton, trap, hip hop, and all points in between.” Renowned Flamenco dancer La Tigresa is accompanied by a blend of traditional Spanish guitar and modern beats to bring you the unique LA sound of Subsuelo.
