Founding member Dan Candelaria said, “It’s mostly cumbia music, and we infuse it with reggae and dub reggae.”

Candelaria said the band’s influences include King Tubby, 1970s reggae, Andres Landero, and Toto la Momposina among others. The band’s lyrics focus on the U.S.-Mexican border and other issues but he said they focus on human stories related to the issues rather than get political.

“We’re really excited,” Candelaria said about coming to Eugene. “We’re doing things I would never have foreseen. We’re coming up to Oregon. I’m playing with my best friends.”
