Hailing from Miami, Sacha Nairobi is a songwriter who lives and breathes through music. A real treat to watch on stage, she practically bursts with the energy of each second of her songs. Each melody, unique and fresh, is executed as a Latin symphony by Sacha's talented band.

Leading the way with an adolescent desire to conquer the world, Tatiana Klauss wakes you up with a painless slap in the face. With a mix of sweet irony and tender aggressiveness, this 17-year-old bewitches and makes you an accomplice in a distorted universe.
A force to be reckoned with, singer/songwriter Coral left her native Argentina at the age of 16 to make her presence known in the American Latin rock scene. Her talent, charisma and beauty are the elements behind performances that are nothing short of mesmerizing.
Described by many as the Latin No Doubt, New York rock band Julissa's objective has been primarily to write and perform their own original pop/rock/alternative music with a Latin feel and sound that could appeal to any and all musical tastes and audiences. Full of energy, Julissa hopes to break barriers by appealing to anyone who simply appreciates music that you can dance or bob to.
