Los Rakas (MIAMI Debut)
Two cousins who grew up in Panama before spending their teens in Oakland, California, Raka Dun and Raka Rich put a distinctive “Panabay” twist on hip-hop and reggae, bridging the streetwise sounds of the places they’ve called home. Los Rakas make music born of migration and tradition, critique and celebration, joy and pain. They make New World music. American music. Panamanian Jamaican Californian music. Music for b-boys and rude boys, dancers and romancers, mainlanders and islanders
and isthmus folk alike. All their music can be heard here: http://losrakas.bandcamp.com/
“Si alguna vez pensó que ya no había nada nuevo bajo el sol en lo que a música urbana se refiere, ahí llegan Los Rakas para hacerle cambiar de parecer.” – Sun Sentinel (Miami)
“Oakland-based Raka Dun and Raka Rich represent some of the best in Spanish-language rap coming out of the US, with a classic flow married to beats that draw from dancehall, future bass and good ol’-fashioned boom-bap.” -AOL Spinner
