Chucha Santamaria Y Usted!

Originally hailing from Puerto Rico and New York respectively, Chucha Santamaria Y Usted is a duo based in Oakland, CA consisting of Sofía Córdova and Matthew Kirkland. After a mutual discovery/re-appreciation of Italo disco, Latin freestyle, and a myriad other pop dance sub-genres Matt and Sofia created a band in an effort not only to have fun but a device in which they could revisit the history of dance music.

Sounding like the perfect replacement for Bonde Do Role, this dynamic duo creates sexy Latin tinged electro floor burners that either melt your face off or seduce you into bed.  It's hot sexy stuff that's almost like aural pornography that comes at you from about 80 different genres at once.  Brilliantly catchy and blindingly good,   Chucha Santamaria Y Usted are all about leaving monolinguals confused but sweaty.

Their debut release is the Chucha Santamaria Y Usted mini LP, and will be out on June 28th through Austin based record label Young Cubs.
