View World Music Days Events for this Artist
El Rio is comprised of Los Angeles (Occupied Tongva Land) locals, Bryan Diaz and Melissa Uribe. Inspired by the urban and natural landscape of the Los Angeles River, the Highlands along the Arroyo Seco and the red tailed hawks that fly above our heads, El Rio evokes sounds and energies of the earth. Their words are of resistance and revolution expressed through Latin American folk rhythms in a lyrical dance that unifies their past and present through song. In solidarity with communities fighting and resisting oppression worldwide, El Rio aims to provoke thought and change through music. They will be joined by Ian Vargas, Eric Padilla, and Harout Gulessarian.
