Heritage Month is an important time for us to pause, reflect, and remember the generations of people that have come before us and paved the way for us to be where we are today. It's also a powerful opportunity to celebrate our culture through food, art, music, storytelling, and much more. At Siete, we welcome every opportunity to amplify, celebrate, and honor Latinx voices, which is why we're highlighting a few musicians and bands that we love!
In the same way our familia loves to share our stories with others through our food, Trio Los Vigilantes delights their friends, family, and fans with their music. As a group, Isaac, Luis Angel, and John are inspired by the sounds of the 1950’s—La Epoca de Oro, The Golden Age. We appreciate that the trio’s craft is deeply rooted in Mexican tradition but with their own unique, modern twists to make it their own.
"What happens when alumni of Austin Latin music scene institutions El Tule, Del Toros, and Hard Proof mix it up with a veteran bass player from the Big Easy?" El Combo Oscuro! Using Latin sounds mixed with the unique sound of a vintage organ and classic guitar strings, El Combo Oscuro creates "psychedelic cumbia," right here in Austin, that everyone can enjoy.
Formerly known as The Tiarra Girls, The Tiarras are a Mexican-American trio paving their way in the music industry. Tiffany, Sophia, and Tori are sisters, songwriters and composers, and three-time Austin Music Award winners. Their music celebrates unity and empowerment, as well as well as their Latina identity and background.
