Los Rakas

Winners of the 2010 Latin Alternative Music Conference’s Jack Daniel’s ‘Discovery Artist’ prize in New York City (an award that goes to the most promising group at the conference and the first time awarded to an urban group), Los Rakas have garnered critical acclaimed with high profile festival appearances including: Central Park Summerstage, Cypress Hill’s Smokeout, Fest, UCLA’s Reggae Jazz Festival and Snoop Dogg’s Spring Gathering.

Representing pan-American flows, Oakland-based Raka Dun and Raka Rich put a distinctive “Panabay” twist on hip-hop and reggae, bridging the streetwise sounds of the places they’ve called home. Tastemakers like the FADER, XLR8R, RCRDLBL to more traditional outlets like The New York Times, NPR & National Geographic have hailed the group.
