Sandra Velasquez of Pistolera on Radio Pocho

On the July 13 episode of Radio Pocho we're excited to feature special guest Sandra Velasquez, lead singer of the New York-based group Pistolera. This band fuses Latin grooves like cumbia, rancheras, corridos with rock as well as a contemporary use of the accordion. They self-describe their music as meeting at the border of Brooklyn and Mexico which is clearly reflected in their latest album, El Desierto y la Ciudad (The Desert and the City).

Sandra will be providing us with some new cuts from the album as well as a guest DJ set of the more influential music in her upbringing.
