ABOUT ELENA & LOS FULANOS:
Elena & Los Fulanos is a bilingual folk rock band based in Washington, DC. Since 2011, they have been creating music that ranges from twangy, heartbreak-themed folk Americana, to soothing, introspective, violin-infused Latin rock. Influenced by front-woman Elena Lacayo’s experience growing up in two cultures (Nicaraguan and American), Elena & Los Fulanos creates a world where language and tradition meld with catchy melodies and inventive chords to enhance appreciation for diversity in an increasingly multi-cultural world. Their debut album, Miel Venenosa, earned a Washington Area Music Association (WAMMIE) nomination for Best Latin Recording in 2014 and they're currently working on their second album to be released in late 2017!
Boaty Otis is a DC-based swamp band, bringing together equal parts Eastern European brass, Cajun fiddle tunes, and dirty southern r&b. Playing loud
honking tunes with dirty finger nail beats that make you want to boogie, Boaty Otis wants to help you live your best life. Get sweaty, get ready, get
