Los Gallos is a 4-piece accordion driven norteño band from Chicago.

Bumbac Joe, né Leopoldo Bello — Lima-born Venezuelan who Madrid embraced as an adopted son — is a DJ/producer whose beats and grooves summon listeners into the fire of Latin American dance. Taking his sampling, looping and remixing into the studio, this beatmaker — now based in Chicago — transforms folkloric rhythms into topical beats and brings marginalized music onto the contemporary dance floor. Winner of the 2016 Best Local Dance Producer ‘Chicago Reader’s Best Of’ poll.

El DJ Rebel X a.k.a. Victor M. Montañez, is a visual artist, activist, educator as well as a DJ. His DJ style is unpredictable, blending old viynl records to mashing rock, cumbia, norteña, and contemporary hits and B-side rarities. His music is a rough blend of cultural and intergeneration music, breaking down and respecting no borders. Sometimes, live spontaneous performers join the mix.
