Frontera Bugalú
Frontera Bugalú
Frontera Bugalu is a musical project founded by accordionist and composer Kiko Rodriguez (from Fuga) in El Paso, Texas in 2011. Originally established to cover songs by border composers from Texas, it eventually became its own creative project with the release of its debut album in 2011. The band made its name by performing an energetic fusion of border folk music with carribean influences.

"Frontera Buglaú plays raw, edgy socially conscious folk music that's danceable. The norteño influence is immediately evident."

-SA Current

The unique fusion of button accordion, harp, piano, and clarinet, the music creates a connection between traditional border music, big city mambo and Caribbean music that swept through Mexico in the 30's. Drawing inspiration from musicians such as Cuban sonero Beny More and mambo master Perez Prado, the result is a unique sound, reflective of the underground “Pachuco” scene of El Paso and Juarez.

FRONTERA BUGALU highlights the roots of Latin music, as well as composers from the El Paso and borderland areas who have had a tremendous influence on modern Latin music.
El nombre de la agrupación surgió en homenaje al Bugalú, una corriente musical surgida entre las comunidades cubanas y puertorriqueñas en el Nueva York de los 60s y 70s, y la música tropical que se bailaba en las fronteras de México y Estados Unidos de esa misma época.
Nalgadas
Nalgadas
"Formed in 2012, garage rock band Nalgadas (which is Spanish for spanking) was inspired by frontman Edgar Delfin's and drummer Leo Lara's childhood in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico." - Noisey

"Straight outta Juárez.
Nalgadas is a four-piece garage punk band that knows how to have a good time. The band was founded in Juárez, and the influence of the border town can still be heard in its music..." - El Paso Times

"...unadulterated garage punk intermixed with hints of Black Sabbath riffage. Add in bratty, nasally vocals from singer and guitarist Edgar Delfin, who also goes by the moniker “Rat Benatar,” and you’ve got a recipe for a good time." - El Paso Times
