The Latin Alternative Music Conference (LAMC) announces a return to New York City this summer from July 9th – 13th.  Today the LAMC is proud to announce the line-up for the annual Celebrate Brooklyn free concert on Friday July 12th, which will feature a trio of exciting artists fusing traditional and modern sounds out of Mexico: Nortec Collective Presents Bostich + Fussible, Mexican Institute of Sound and Mariachi Flor de Toloache.

Grammy-nominated electronic pioneers Nortec Collective Presents Bostich + Fussible perform a unique fusion of Norteño (“from the North”) and Techno, a style of music they invented, which documents the collision between electronica and traditional Mexican music.  With tubas and iPads, Bostich + Fussible have toured the globe extensively, performing at festivals like Coachella and Bonnaroo, and major international shows from Brazil to China.  They recently appeared as guests on “No Reservations” during Anthony Bourdain’s visit to Tijuana and performed at the massive opening ceremonies for the Pan American Games alongside fellow Mexican legends Vicente Fernández and Maná, televised worldwide and watched by billions across the globe.  

During LAMC this summer, Bostich + Fussible will also debut their new collaboration with the modern dance group Pilobolus and choreographer Trish Sie (the team responsible for the treadmill-themed viral video hit of indie band OK Go!).  Watch a preview video about this collaboration here:

Thanks to the critical and commercial success of Mexican Institute of Sound’salbums ‘Mexico and ‘Soy Sauce’, M.I.S has brought their unique style of retro-futuristic fusion — incorporating elements of cumbia, punk and electro — to festival stages from Lollapalooza to Coachella, along with a wide range of high-profile features in HBO ‘Entourage.’ ‘Californication’ and EA Sports’ ‘FIFA’ soccer video game.

NYC’s all-female mariachi band, Mariachi Flor de Toloache will be opening the free concert, setting the stage with traditional sounds before Nortec Collective Presents Bostich + Fussible and Mexican Institute Of Sound bring the new sounds of Mexico to New York City.

LAMC has already announced the annual set of Central Park SummerStage free concerts, with acts ranging from breakout young stars like Alex Anwandter, Los Rakas and Natalia Clavier to established icons like Julieta Venegas and Lila Downs.  With past conferences averaging more than 1,250 music industry attendees and 25,000 concert fans each year, the 14th LAMC promises to be yet another exciting year. This four day conference providing networking opportunities with the genre’s leading artists, thinkers, music entrepreneurs, journalists, marketers, managers and programmers, is the most extensive to be offered by a Latin music conference to date. This year’s panels will include many of the music industry’s most prominent decision-makers discussing timely and relevant topics affecting the music industry today.

The 14th annual LAMC will break new ground, inaugurating a new expanded focus on a diverse array of special events dedicated to music, food, film, books, art and poetry.
