This new music festival blows up the myth that Latin musicians can be easily lumped into one convenient genre or category. Supersonico bursts with performers from a wide array of styles, from the electronic and techno-infused dance music of Nortec Collective's Bostich + Fussible to the relatively traditional pop hybrids of Café Tacuba. The lineup is all over the map — literally — with sets from French-Chilean rapper Ana Tijoux, Colombia's Bomba Estéreo and their juiced-up cumbia, Puerto Rican hip-hop rockers Calle 13, Japan's Tokyo Ska Paradise Orchestra and the Panamanian/Bay Area reggaeton artisans Los Rakas. Several notable local luminaries are in the house, including the madly eclectic La Santa Cecilia and former Tijuana No! chanteuse Ceci Bastida, who has evolved from a teenage punk-ska heroine into a fully grown, electronica-laced, contemplative pop diva.
