Lysa Flores is a singer-songwriter, activist, actor, producer, and pioneer in the "East Los" alternative scene. She started her own record label, Bring Your Love, in 1998, and she was named by Newsweek as one of "20 young Latinos to watch in the new millennium."  Bringing her unique style to a variety of musical genres and art forms, Flores has toured extensively through the U.S. and Europe, and has recorded and collaborated with such luminaries as indie-rock legend Jonathan Richman, Tex-Mex superstar Flaco Jiménez, David Hidalgo of Los Lobos, guitarist Bill Frisell, and drummer D. J. Bonebrake of X and The Knitters. She was lead guitarist with L.A. punk legend Alice Bag's all-female band, Stay at Home Bomb, and toured the globe as a vocalist for performance artist El Vez. Her albums include Tree of Hope, The Making of a Trophy Grrrl!, and Bring Your Love.   East LA Taiko was created by master Taiko drummer Maceo Hernandez ("demon drummer from East LA") in 1991, and blends Afro-Cuban rhythms with driving Taiko beats—a fiery, eclectic blend of world rhythms that travels the globe while taking the listener into the heart of Los Angeles. Hernandez, who has been performing Taiko for over 20 years, lived and trained in Japan, performing in Asia, Europe, and North America, and has appeared at New York's Carnegie Hall. Maceo Hernandez and Lysa Flores will both be available for interviews.   Yuujou Daiko, another incredible Taiko group from Southern California whose name means “friendship,” will also perform with Lysa Flores and East LA Taiko.
