Each year, artists from all over the globe fly in to join us at the SXSW Music Festival in Austin, TX. Today, we're shining a light on 2023 Showcasing Artists hailing from Puerto Rico.
From salsa legends to some of the biggest pop stars in the world, Puerto Rico has long-since provided a wide range of sounds. This year at SXSW you can expect nothing less, with satirical new-wave boleros from Los Rivera Destino; the searing bomba y plena of Piquete; reggaeton revolutionary Villano Antillano; the versatile, Grammy-winning vocalist iLe; poetic rapper The Color Brown; and more!
For the first time, the Puerto Rico Independent Musicians & Artists Fund will present a Showcase that includes artists UnÁnima, Neysa Blay, El Laberinto del Coco, and Piquete. The PRIMA Fund is a collective of musicians and artists with the mission of helping sustain the independent musical community in Puerto Rico. As a musician-led organization, it is a trusted and vital resource for the music community in Puerto Rico.
