Rasquache Liberation Front

...a trippy, original stew of Chicano music to raise spirits and liberate audiences

The Rasquache Liberation Front’s (RLF) forthcoming album produced by Los Lobos’ Steve Berlin, is a dispatch of original psychedelic cumbias, jarocho blues, lowrider folk, and cuentos. Original songs, with English and Spanish lyrics, explore stories of migration, family and identity. Collectively, the RLF creates a trippy and original stew of Chicano music to raise spirits and liberate audiences. 

The RLF emerges from the eclectic musical backgrounds of front members that span from mariachi to Puerto Rican bomba, Tejano to Afro Cuban jazz, and from salsa to blues.

The RLF músicos have toiled for decades in Latino music scenes in NorCal and beyond—at salsa clubs and VFW halls, on mainstages and in lobbies—working with a who’s-who of internationally renown artists. Their live shows blend their deep repertoire of Latin genres from cumbia to son jarocho with original songs steeped in Mexican-Americana.

The RLF's diverse sets and skilled músicos complement many genres and delivers on a variety of stages, from intimate venues to concert halls in electric or acoustic settings.
