Los Rakas have racked up a high-profile gig…
The bilingual hip-hop group, consisting of Panamanian cousins Raka Rich and Raka Dun, have been added to the just-revealed lineup for this year’s Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival.
The music festival, which takes place in the California desert, will take place on the weekends of April 10 and 17. It habitually spotlights several Latin artists among its performers, with an emphasis on Mexican acts.
Los Rakas created major buzz in urban latino circles last year with the duo’s album El Negrito Dun Dun and Ricardo. The Bay Area-based artists will go on tour in February for a series of dates in Western states with Zion I, Locksmith and Vokab Kompany just before landing in Indio, California for Coachella.
In addition to Los Rakas, other Latin acts include Chicano Batman and Nortec Collective’s Bostich+Fussible.
Bostich+Fussible, who will also to perform at this year’s Vive Latino in Mexico City, have announced that their latest album, Motel Baja, will be their last under the Nortec name.
