Argentinian born Federico Aubele is not what you would call a newcomer to the music scene. Playing since he was twelve, the singer-songwriter has already five albums under his belt fusing his native country's tango with Jamaican dub/reggae, American hip hop, lounge and various Latin sounds.
Award-winning Austin singer/songwriter Gina Chavez is back with her sophomore studio album, Up.Rooted, released February 2014. Chavez has received national recognition from NPR’s “All Songs Considered” and “Alt.Latino” for her debut SXSW performance (2012) as one of the new Latin artists to watch, and the Austin American-Statesman calls her “a true Austin music treasure — angelic vocals and a devilish treat on guitar.”
