Torreblanca
Torreblanca
TORREBLANCA is a Mexican band that plays Alternative Pop-Rock (with
some symphonic influences and weird, playful, intimate and thoughtful
lyrics). It's a band that strives –more than anything- to connect with
the audience live at the stage through original, not boring, powerful
and intense lyrics., with fresh and streamlined interpretations.

Among band members everybody see themselves as friends, companions,
accomplices and (more than anything, the main idea) as professional
musicians. It's nothing new to say independent music today is new
world with uncertainty and surprises. The guys of TORREBLANCA know
this and they don't know yet what will happen in the future, but if
there is anything they do know is that they all love music and (above
all) they love to make music. They hope that music never leaves them and that they never leave music.
Ulises Hadjis
Ulises Hadjis
Ulises Hadjis is a Pop singer-songwriter whose work has been called "the BEST KEPT SECRET of new Venezuelan music" by HTV, and has been praised for its simple melodies yet heavy lyrics. Apart from being a musician, he graduated from sociology and most recently received a Master degree in Philosophy which are contributive factors in all of his songs. Ulises believes that "the subconscious plays a very important role in all artists' creation process". His current album, Cosas Perdidas, and lead single, Donde Va, were featured and reviewed by influential music blogs and sites worldwide such as Club Fonograma, El Amarillo, Yahoo Music, and Sounds and Colours who called Ulises "one of South America's FINEST POP PURVEYORS". He is currently promoting his new album in the US with dates in New York and Miami.
La Vela Puerca
La Vela Puerca
La Vela Puerca is “Uruguay’s most famous ska-rock-band”. It was founded 1995 in Montevideo.

Its founders were Sebastián Teysera (lead vocals, frontman and main songwriter), Nicolás Lieutier (bass guitar) and Santiago Butler (guitar) - all three are still part of the band today. The band’s first appearance as La Vela Puerca was in a montevidean street party in December 24, 1995. By then, several new members had already joined in. In 1996, frontman Sebastián Teysera presented a demo tape to a band contest. The rest of the band did not become aware of this until they found out they were one of the twenty finalists. A month later, they recieved a phone call saying they had won, and with this they were given 80 hours of free recording session which would be vital for their debut album.

"Rumored to make even repressed nuns get up and dance, this duo of mischievous horn dog cumbieros, El Comanche y Larry Mon, hail from Guadalajara, Jalisco, where they make all the spring chickens fluff feathers and hatch eggs with their quacked-out sound. Whether it’s setting the dance floor on fire with their tom-knocking boots or burning retinas with their insane banda shirts, these goofball performers have been touring the Southwest and México making all the ladies melt and some mustache-fiending homeboys hot-to-trot as well. If they’re aren’t taking swan dives on stage or long trips to the beach for equal measure, you’re sure to find these two filming delicious little music videos capturing their singular clown-act cumbia with no qualms about tact." -Jose Benavides, Remezcla Music
