Lolita Fuses Cultures and Genres at Open Media Foundation
On Friday, May 5, the Open Media Foundation hosts its next monthly free Open Music Session event, which will spotlight music from Los Lunaticos, while comedy will come courtesy of Jose Macall. The April Open Music Session welcomed Lolita Castañeda, a local singer, MC, artist and activist, alongside hip-hop duo 2MX2. The two acts work together perfectly, as both favor inspiring lyrics and a style that blends contemporary rap and soul with Latin music.
“Stardust” is a great example — a song that features both English and Spanish lyrics, Castañeda’s smooth vocals elegantly complementing the harder rap.
