Phoenix Latin Folk Fusion quintet Las Chollas Peligrosas features five female musicians weaving folkloric threads with modern movements.
All-female Phoenix quintet 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.
Five-part multi-lingual vocals, accordion, flute, classical guitar, percussion and upright bass deliver a mix of classic standards and inspired original compositions.
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.
Each member of Las Chollas Peligrosas have arrived from different musical journeys but 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.
