Summer Sounds on the Plaza
Reyna Tropical

Presented by presented by
Venue: Julianne and George Argyros Plaza Free – Tickets Required

Overview

Summer Sounds on the Plaza returns with another exciting lineup of live music reflecting a range of global influences found in Southern California. Enjoy an evening of breezy tropical beats with Reyna Tropical and DJ Sizzle Fantastic.

Reyna Tropical is 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.

Sizzle Fantastic is a DJ, public speaker, and former labor-immigrant rights organizer born in Guerrero, Mexico, and raised in Boyle Heights, California. Currently, she is the resident DJ and Director of Cumbiatón, a nationwide event paying homage to the Afro-Latinx cultura and musica de barrios. Through music, art, and activism she uplifts and centers women, immigrant, queer, and working-class BIPOC communities. Her work has been praised by many and has been featured in reputable outlets such as Los Angeles Magazine, Remezcla, and Uproxxx.
