La Gente, led by Rafael Bustamante Sarria, plays an intoxicating cocktail of world music, mixing cumbia, reggae, salsa and hip-hop. Their live shows are just the thing to shake off the post-holiday doldrums without forgetting your conscience. "Dance music with a political edge" is also a pretty accurate description of Soltron, opening for La Gente at this show on Jan. 12. We love both these bands — KQED profiled Soltron a few years ago. You can check out both the videos below to compare and contrast. There are no wrong answers. Details here.
