Las Chollas Peligrosas
About the Event
All-female Phoenix sextet Las Chollas Peligrosas draws upon multiple subgenres of traditional Latin music, from rancheras to mariachi to Cumbia and everything in between, even hints of old-world folk. Six-part multi-lingual vocals, accordion, violin, classical guitar, percussion, and upright bass deliver a mix of classic standards and inspired original compositions.
Rich with supporting harmonies, all the ladies take the lead at one point or another in the show and much of the subject matter is catalytic, pointed and poignant in true folkloric fashion. In the spirit of their prickly namesake, Las Chollas Peligrosas speak to truth and empowerment in the name of human rights and cultural awareness.
