La Escala Sonora Showcases Serious International Talent

If you’re a music enthusiast in South Florida, you probably remember the House of Creatives Music Festival  that brought acts like The Flaming Lips, M.I.A., Chromeo, MGMT and many more over the span of four years. Mishu Music, the team behind that festival, is back with an exciting new event series in the heart of Miami promising to showcase some of the most promising Latinx artists from around the world: ESCALA SONORA.

Escala Sonora is a testament to the organizers’ love for indie and alternative music, combined with their growing passion for supporting artists who are making waves in the Latin music scene. The series made its debut in the summer of 2021, and it has been making waves ever since. Behind the scenes, Mishu Music is the driving force responsible for bringing Escala Sonora to life. The multi-faceted music collective has a primary focus on live event production, and operates from offices in both Miami, and Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. With a passion for music at its core, Mishu Music is dedicated to creating unforgettable experiences for music lovers through concert and festival promotion, terrestrial radio broadcasting, and comprehensive artist development services.

The lineup for this October 4th event features a diverse range of artists who are pushing the boundaries of Latin music including:

Puerto Rican sensation Villano Antillano’s meteoric rise in the music scene began with a viral collaboration alongside Argentinian producer Bizarrap. She is playing her part in the golden age of reggaeton, reinventing the style with her unique perspective and abilities. One of the first prominent stars in Latin music who happens to be trans, her story is complex and inspiring.

Also hailing from Puerto Rico is Rafa Pabön,

a multi-talented artist who seamlessly blends urban rhythms with Latin genres such as rumba, salsa, and cumbia. His pursuit of music professionally began with his early start at the Free School of Music San Juan at 12 years old. His latest album, “Galería,” has garnered recognition as one of Rolling Stone’s “Best Albums of 2023 So Far.”

YEИDRY, with roots in both the Dominican Republic and Italy, offers a unique blend of Latin percussions and European electronic elements, promising an enthralling live performance. Her song Nena is hauntingly beautiful, with a gritty edge that grounds it in reality. KI-KI by contrast is an uptempo groove that incorporates raw bars from London rapper ENNY on a more recent version of the song.

RaiNao, another talent from “la isla del encanto,” captivates audiences with her alternative brand of Latine trap and perreo. After four years touring with Rafa Pabön as a backup singer, in 2020 she began more earnestly putting out her own tracks.

Dominican diva Letón Pé is a rising star,

crafting one-of-a-kind combinations of Latin pop and Afro-Caribbean rhythms that are sure to leave you enchanted. With roots starting in musical theater as a teen, she’s worked her way up through the music industry taking on various roles in her journey into the spotlight.

Not to be overlooked, Calacote, the up-and-coming Dominican rapper, infuses his songs with influences as diverse as dembow and perreo to bolero, punk rock, French rap, and American hip-hop.

La Escala Sonora promises an unforgettable night of Caribbean vibes and Latin beats. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to immerse yourself in the rich tapestry of Latin music at the Miami Beach Bandshell. Mark your calendars for October 4th, and tap into the new heartbeat of Latin music coming to Miami Beach!
