Dos Santos: Anti-Beat Orquesta
Dos Santos: Anti-Beat Orquesta
Dos Santos: Anti-Beat Orquesta rocks the sounds of popular pan-Latin American dance genres—from cumbia to salsa. Recently voted Chicago's Best Emerging Artist of 2015 by the Deli Magazine's Readers Poll, their gritty, grassroots approach captures the “golden age” of streamlined tight-knit ensembles that shook sweatbox dance floors with raw and fierce energy throughout Latin America in the 1970s and 80s—honest dance music with no frills and no fear, anchored by piercing guitars, garage organs, and spirited percussion.

The group’s five members (Peter Vale, Alex Chavez, Daniel Villarreal-Carrillo, Jaime Garza, Nathan Karagianis) have their own storied careers in a diversity of styles—including jazz, R&B/soul, traditional Mexican folk, punk, cumbia, salsa, and electronica—in addition to a history of critical involvement in arts education and social justice organizing. Their visceral sound draws from this sonic, cultural, and political well of influence, and is guaranteed to make you move.

After making their debut in May of 2013, Dos Santos has been steadily making the rounds at Chicago’s premiere live music venues and festivals. In March of 2015, they released their critically-acclaimed self-titled debut album Dos Santos and subsequently made appearances at SXSW, the Pachanga Latino Music Festival, and the Ruido Fest Latin Alternative Music Festival. Shortly thereafter, they hit the road on their ​"Corre Caballo Tour." ​The band is currently working on an EP with producer Beto Martínez of Grammy Award-winning Grupo Fantasma to be released in Fall 2016.

"Listening to Money Chicha feels a bit like taking a hit of acid, downing a couple shots of Tequila, and hopping a plane to 1960s Peru. If that particular combination of drugs and time travel sounds even a little interesting, you owe it to yourself to spend some time with this unique Austin band. Nominally a mildly alcoholic beverage popular with workers across South America, Chicha became synonymous with a distinctive genre of music that mixes the distorted guitar sounds of American psychedelic rock with traditional Colombian cumbia. Now combine that heady brew with a little South Texas swagger and some bruising Latin funk and you’ll get a feel for Money Chicha’s music. Sounds pretty crazy, right? That’s because it is. It’s the kind of music that rewires your brain, awakens your spirit animal, and takes you places you’ve never been." - KUTX 98.9 Austin

"Escucha de Money Chicha siente un poco como recibir un golpe de ácido, el derribo de un par de tragos de tequila, y saltando de un avión a Perú 1960. Si esa combinación particular de fármacos y viajes en el tiempo suena incluso un poco interesante, se debe a sí mismo para pasar algún tiempo con esta banda única de Austin. Nominalmente una bebida ligeramente alcohólica popular entre los trabajadores a través de América del Sur, Chicha se convirtió en sinónimo de un género distintivo de la música que mezcla los sonidos de guitarra distorsionados de rock psicodélico americano con la cumbia tradicional colombiana. Ahora combinar esa mezcla embriagadora con un poco de fanfarronería el sur de Texas y algunos moretones Latin funk y obtendrá una sensación para la música de Chicha dinero. Suena una locura, ¿verdad? Eso es porque lo es. Es el tipo de música que se reprograma tu cerebro, despierta su animal del alcohol, y te lleva a lugares que nunca has estado." - KUTX 98.9 Austin
