Genre: Latin fusion

Soleri Stage

Map to Location

All-female Phoenix sextet Las Chollas Peligrosas draws upon multiple subgenres of traditional Latin music, from rancheras to mariachi to Cumbia and everything in between—even hints of Old World gypsy folk. Six-part multilingual vocals, accordion, violin, classical guitar, percussion and upright bass deliver a mix of classic standards and inspired original compositions. Rich with supporting harmonies, all the ladies take the lead at one point or another in the show and much of the subject matter is catalytic, pointed and poignant in true folkloric fashion. In the spirit of their prickly namesake, Las Chollas Peligrosas speak to truth and empowerment in the name of human rights and cultural awareness. Each member of Las Chollas Peligrosas has arrived from a different musical journey, but they all share a love for this music and the power it has to unite the community and communicate the voice of the people for positive change.
