'Summerstage Festival: ChocQuibTown+Rita Indiana+Ursula 1000+Que Bajo?'
This is the shape of Latin music to come. Hailing from Quibdo on the Pacific Coast, ChocQuibTown blends hip-hop with coastal and African rhythms. Statuesque and androgynous, the writer and former model Rita Indiana fronts a kinetic crew fueled on hyper-driven merengue beats. Brooklyn's Ursula 1000 specializes in ultrasmooth retro-lounge concoctions with a Latin kink. And the Que Bajo?! sound system spins the most forward-listening Latin sounds in town.
