Buyepongo means “to cause a ruckus” – which certainly describes the scene on the dance floors of Los Angeles whenever the band launches into its dizzyingly energetic, instantly infectious rhythms. But it also describes Buyepongo’s riotous mash-up of influences, which absorbs hip-hop, punk, funk, and jazz sounds into a delirious tropical blend of styles from across the Latin American diaspora. Like its name, the band is part hybrid, part invention, something untranslatable that nevertheless perfectly captures its uniquely vibrant spirit.
Born out of the rich arts community of San Francisco's Mission district, Soltron is a native fusion of afro-carribean rythms, Latin rock,samba batucada laced with strains of hip-hop, jazz and electronic music. Their music addresses gentrification, displaced youth and building community.
