2012 Anti-Mall: People B4 Profit at El Centro Cultural de Mexico, in Santa Ana, CA
"The Taino Sunz are Quique Cruz and HecVortex,
two sunz of Boriken who have risen in the East and settled in the West. Through community activism and Hip Hop they shine their light and
fight for what’s right… ’til the Break of Dawn."
Son del Centro
"A group of youth community activists that use the Jarana
as their weapon of choice. In this NON-PROFIT
musical group all the members are volunteers, and
100% of the revenues from CD sales goes to sustain
El Centro Cultural en Santa Ana."
"Santa Ana's Michelle Reyes doesn't take to the ones and twos to pad her pocketbook nor to gain name recognition. DJ Michelle carefully crafts sets reflective of her city's multiple musical layers, spinning everything from Los Tigres del Norte to Rage Against the Machine, Black Sabbath and Morrissey to Chico Che y La Crisis."
"¡Aparato! is a rock band.
The ¡Aparato! sound delivers “post”–punk expression and ventures into ethereal soundscapes that are soothing, yet inspire personal reflection.
¡Aparato! is the creative spirit of music.
¡Aparato! will set you free."
"At first listen, young jazz singer/songwriter Nancy Sanchez
is musically mature beyond her years. Better yet, she’s
just getting started. The immigrant from Toluca,
Mexico, made her home inAnaheim at an earlyage before settling
in Fullerton. Sanchez’s life experience is reflected in how
easily the singer shifts among English and Spanish original compositions and classic standards."
PLUS performances by El Centro's Youth Folklorico Group, poets, and more!
