LAS SUCIAS

BIOGRAPHY: 

Las Sucias is a duo formed by Danishta Rivero and Alexandra Buschman, mixing anti-patriarchal riotgrrrl lyrics, afro- caribbean rhythms, brujería noise and possessed vocals. Each performance is a ritual that combines all of the senses and elevates into a higher realm, inspiring the listener to dance, speak in tongues, laugh hysterically and get possessed by the spirits awoken.

LAS SUCIAS

Las Sucias is a feminist noise duo formed by Danishta Rivero and Alexandra Buschma. The Oakland based group's chaotic mix of influences range from old school Caribbean styles such as Reggaetón, Dembow and Dancehall, to Noise, European 1960's vanguard, Goth, Riotgrrrl Punk, Free Jazz, Experimental and Industrial. Additionally their sound was shaped by BOMBA and GAITA DE TAMBORA DE VENEZUELA, styles that already contain a blend of the cultures of Venezuela and Puerto Rico respectively.
