CHIKA DI

Diana Trujillo, known professionally as Chika Di, is a Colombian born singer and songwriter. She has toured and sang with several rock bands in Colombia before immigrating to the United States. Diana springboarded her music career with various salsa bands in Northern California before joining La Misa Negra as the lead vocalist and later songwriting partner of the renowned band.

Diana’s unique ability to sing various genres of Latin music coupled with her exciting upbeat performances have propelled her forward and allowed her to perform and share the spotlight with many reputable bands and artists such as the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Mon Laferte, Ozomatli, Bomba Estereo, among others.

THE RUMBA MADRE

The Latinx, Chicanx, Colombian, Galician, Basque, Nuyorican, Boricua, Spanish, Nashville-based melting pot under the name of The Rumba Madre has been bringing together crowds from all kinds of backgrounds for a few years now. By fusing punk with Rumba, Son, Polka, Flamenco, Salsa, Tango and more, the band seeks to create a unique transnational experience that proves that all boundaries can be challenged. Their wide musical backgrounds and their equally satirical and committed multilingual lyrics break through the traditional standards of Latin music(s) to provide today’s multicultural and globalized world with an up-to-date soundtrack. The band finished recording their first album, Prisiones y Fugas, in early 2020, under the experienced guidance of multi-GRAMMY winning producer / engineer Iván Gutiérrez Carrasquillo (Cultura Profética, Calle 13) and will be releasing various singles in the upcoming months. Other people that also collaborated in the album are Alfredo Espinoza “Mañito Jr” (Pamir Guanchez, “El moreno Michael”, etc.), Dominik Gryzbon (Elton John, Iggy Azalea, Zac Brown Band, Ozzy Osbourne), Emilio Ferraro (Cuatro pesos de propina, etc.), Cristine Diez Correa a.k.a. “La Diez” (Zurda Music) and the producer and multi-instrumentalist Kiko Negrón (Kike Pavón, Tony Melendez, etc.) Additionally, also signed on to the team are Diana Rodríguez from Criteria Entertainment (Mon Laferte, Draco Rosa, Bunbury), Andy Averbuch (Kokolo, Joe Bataan, Flor de Toloache), and Mireya Ramos (Flor de Toloache). Overall, Prisiones y fugas showcases a very unique fusion that relies strongly on the rich traditions of the Americas and the Iberian Peninsula but that, at the same time, connects with the most current musical trends of, for instance, Trap or Reggaeton, just to name a few.
