Dos Santos - March 19th, 2015

After making their debut in May of 2013, Dos Santos has been steadily making the rounds at Chicago’s premiere live music venues and festivals, bringing the sounds of pan-Latin American cumbia to audiences across the city with their gritty, grassroots, sweatbox dance floor approach.
