Pandemic : Dos Santos & Rio Mira

Uploaded by esspingo
Chicago-based quintet Dos Santos was collectively raised listening to popular American tunes and traditional Latin music. The influence of that musical upbringing, combined with the rich jazz scene found in Chicago, resulted in Dos Santos’ unique blend of cabaret, cumbia, and Latinx punk, wrapped in a jazz package. Alex Chavez, the leader of Dos Santos, says in a Bandcamp article that the band is “kind of a bridge. A lot of music comes out of Chicago, and in some ways it goes underappreciated … it also seems like a lot of scenes are segregated from one another. There’s an interesting moment where there seems to be a lot of bridging between scenes, or at the very least, conversations between scenes.” As part of Pandemic Dance Party’s quest to bring global dance styles to Pittsburgh, Dos Santos, along with Afro Latino folkloric group Rio Mira, will play at Roundabouts Pop Up Beer Garden on Saturday. If the event is successful, Pandemic plans to have more shows there in the future.
