KCRW Festival: Los Fabulosos Cadillacs, Los Auténticos Decadentes
Sep 24 • 7:00 pm PDT
Los Fabulosos Cadillacs are a force in Latin American music. Over nearly four decades, they’ve constantly evolved, moving through and incorporating sounds from the worlds of ska, reggae, rock, rap, and salsa. There is, quite simply, nobody who sounds like them, and they’ve collaborated with everyone from Celia Cruz and Rubén Blades to Mick Jones of The Clash. On their El León del Ritmo tour, they celebrate the 30th anniversary of their mega-hit “Matador,” a barreling anthem that blew the doors off of MTV Latino when it debuted.
Rockers Los Auténticos Decadentes became one of the Americas’ greatest bands by forging a wide-open style that encompasses ska, cumbia, reggae, bolero, and more. That open-mindedness has made them one of Latin America’s most influential groups and won them a multi-generational fanbase that’s drawn to their high-energy, joyful cathartic sounds.
KCRW Festival presents Los Fabulosos Cadillacs and Los Auténticos Decadentes at the Hollywood Bowl on Sunday, September 24.
