Bio: There are groups that come along and totally change the way we listen, appreciate and connect to music. Los Rakas is another one of these groups. Hailing from Panama but now residing in Oakland, Los Rakas blends Hip Hop, Reggae and Dancehall music with Spanish and English lyricism creating songs that leaves your head noddin' and body rockin' for more. Los Rakas (DunDun and Rico AKA Filthy Rich) tag team the mic with a tenacity reminiscent of Old School veterans in the Hip Hop game, and the energy and passion of the newer cats on the scene. With a fusion of Spanish and English lyrics, Los Rakas are like no other, being compared to a Latin "OutKast". This combination ensures that they will be on horizon for years to come. Although Los Rakas are relatively new on the music scene (4 years recording/performing) Los Rakas are fortunate to have performed alongside artist such as: Mos Def, DJ FLEX (from Panama), Dead Prez, KRS ONE, Goapele, Mystic, Zion I, Fat Joe, Colby O'donis, Extreme, Def Poetry Jam NY, among others. With this unique sound they were invited to Mun2 (National Television), One Nation under Hip Hop w/ Dj Frankie Needles, including a recent nomination for a Mun2 awards. Los Rakas were also fortunate to be part of MTVtrs3, "A day with a star". Los Rakas plan to gain radio play and continue having there video "Mi Barrio" aired on T.V. (currently on Mun2, LATV, and MTVtres, Youtube). For the remaining of '09 Los Rakas are preparing the release of the street album/mixtape PANABAY TWIST 2 "La Tanda Del Bus", and continue marketing the Raka t-shirts. Currently Los Rakas are booking shows and events and have had successful years creating a buzz displaying just what the people who have seen them perform already know, that Los Rakas are the truth. Panabay Twist 2 "La Tanda Del Bus" is sure to be one of the most talked about and sought after mixtapes to come out in sometime. www.losrakas.com
