FistUpTV: DJ Leydis + Los Rakas LIVE in San Francisco.

BY , September 24, 2010

Our brother Eli Jacobs-Fantauzzi of Clenched Fist Productions/FistUp.TV just shot and cut this nice little gem featuring DJ Leydis of Cuba and Los Rakas repping Panama.

DJ Leydis:
Leydis was born and raised in Cuba. She became involved in the Cuban hip hop movement during its inception and helped organize events, community shows, and a women’s hip hop collective called Omega. She has also continued to be an articulate speaker on Cuban hip-hop culture. Having recently moved to the United States, she currently resides in the Bay Area and is the tour DJ for Omegas Kilay, Las Krudas and Los Rakas.

Los Rakas:
There are groups that come along and change the way we listen, appreciate and connect to music. Hailing from Panama but now residing in California, Los Rakas blends Hip Hop, Reggae and Dancehall music with Spanish and English lyricism creating songs that leave your head noddin’ and body rockin’ for more.
