About this event

REYNA TROPICAL

lareynatropical.com

Reyna Tropical are composed of Mexican expats Fabiola Reyna and Sumohair. The duo met as part of Red Bull Music Academy’s Bass Camp at Bonnaroo Music Festival in 2017—chosen as two of 20 up-and-coming producers and musicians from around the country. It was there that they bonded over their love for the tropical diaspora and began experimenting with their unique writing process: a process inclusive of pure improvisation consisting of a four hour session per song aimed at capturing the moment and the environment.

Today, Reyna Tropical merges their passion for social justice and community organizing with the space and opportunities that they can create through their music. As the bands tagline, “Queer Love & Afro-Mexico” is dedicated to raising awareness and funds to issues connected to the environment, inclusive of Indigenous rights, Afro-Mexican rights, missing and murdered indigenous women, and the many injustices that live in and in between the spectrum of Queer Love & Afro-Mexico.

With the continued support of artists such as Bomba Estéreo, Lido Pimienta, Portugal The Man, and Y La Bamba, Reyna Tropical has also been recognized by Remezcla (Reyna Tropical: A Queer Love Revolution), Grimy Goods (Reyna Tropical Pay Tribute To The World’s Bodies Of Water And Life On Sublime New Ep Sol Y Lluvia), and NPR’s 2022 artists to watch.

Check out their soundcloud here.

Agua de Rosas is a Midwest based event and DJ collective formed in 2018 in Milwaukee, WI. The group specializes in curating alternative Reggaetón parties that foster a safe and consensual environment for all attendees. Their events aim to be all inclusive with an emphasis on BIPOC femme and queer gentx to the front! Their mission is to celebrate the power and magic of Reggaetón by acknowledging the genre’s African and Afro-Latino roots, and showcasing the genre’s many evolutions and imaginings. Founders Chanchita Riveros and Julio Cordova are joined by newest member Karennoid, a southside Chicago native.
