¿Qiensave? is a Cumbia Urbana group from Salinas California with their roots stretching back to Michoacán, Mexico.  They create high energy dance music that has fortunately blessed them with the opportunity to travel throughout California, Mexico and Colombia. Qiensave has existed as musical entity since 2009, but within the last few years they have picked up steam through touring, releasing an album on Moore Mapp records entitled “Como Verte”, releasing singles produced by world renowned and Latin Grammy nominated musician Eric Canales and Platinum Producer Sam Pura, and sharing the stage with acts like Celso Piña, La Santa Cecilia, Fuerza de Tijuana, and La Septima Banda among others. Currently the band is promoting the release of their new album “Mujer” sharing their love of music, culture, and dance with the world, because dancing keeps the body healthy and a healthy body is a healthy spirit.


La Mera Candelaria is a female-fronted, cumbia-son solo project based in Los Angeles, CA. Stephani "La Mera" Candelaria's unique style is a light-hearted, vivacious mixture of tropical rhythms; sassy, humorous lyrics that deliver a powerfully feminist message; and a humble, countryside sabór!
The project was launched in summer 2017 by Bay Area musical transplant, Stephani "La Mera" Candelaria, who has been performing as front-woman/vocalist since 2008-- her previous groups include Tambores de Colombia, La Misa Negra, and Candelaria, and she has been featured as a collaborator/guest vocalist with Discos Resaca, Buyepongo, Viento Callejero, Tone Irie, and La Junta Collective. After moving to Los Angeles, Candelaria quickly put together a new project focused around her own original material, and began the process of creating a new, tasty sub-genre of Latin dance music, one she loosely dubs "cumbia-son." The project's combination of Colombian-style cumbia with Son Cubano is what makes it so unique and unforgettable-- while the rhythms and bass lines suggest classic cumbia, the group utilizes a Cuban tres as the lead instrument, lending to the group's unmistakable earthy, Caribbean sabór. This brand-new take on Latin dance music has quickly gained the attention of venues and other entertainers up and down the West Coast. Though still relatively new to the scene, La Mera Candelaria has already shared the stage with Mexican cumbia legend Celso Piña, Bay Area heavyweights Bang Data, and Los Angeles visionary NKRiot, and has quickly built a reputation up and down the West Coast as an infectious, powerhouse, and ultimately, unforgettable performance.
