Latin Urban Band Axxent Set to Rock the Salvadorian Festival in Los Angeles on August 1

Innovative Band Blends Hip-Hop, R&B, Latin Grooves and Reggaeton

Press Release (PressBurner) Jul 26, 2009 - LOS ANGELES – The Latin urban band Axxent will rock the park on August 1 bringing its creative fusion of Hip-Hop, R&B, Latin Grooves and Reggaeton to the expected 50,000 people at the Salvadorian Festival at 1:20 p.m. in McArthur Park.

“We are excited to be one of the headliners at the Salvadorian Festival in Los Angeles,” said Delwin G of Axxent. “We are ready to bring down the house and have a great time.”

The festival kicks-off the band’s 2010 concert tour with national dates planned for New York, Los Angeles, Chicago and Miami. International stops will include Mexico, Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, Chile and others.

“Our goal in writing this record was to stay true to urban hip-hop while cutting across ages, races and cultures,” Lady O said. “We are on the cutting edge with our music and we are constantly experimenting to push our work to new levels.”

Axxent’s music plays well in a multicultural society that’s constantly blending and evolving.
“Axxent offers a new sound for the global age,” producer BOI said. “People talk about globalism and that is definitely true when it comes to music. Innovative bands are exploring music and mixing up different styles to define a new musical identity. That’s what Axxent is all about.”

Both lead members boast an extensive artistic resume and bring something unique to the table. Delwin G is an east coast Dominican rapper of relentless drive and wicked battle skills in both English and Spanish. Delwin opened for some of the greatest names in Hip Hop such as The Fugees, Run DMC and Sugar Hill Gang. Meanwhile, Lady O is an extraordinary European songwriter who combines old school sensibility with island rhythm, well crafted pop hooks and streetwise rap in English, Spanish, Italian and French.  

To add to their international vibe is The Axxent Crew - a squad of the most talented hip-hop dancers in Los Angeles headed by lead choreographer Timothy Fahey.  Fahey has worked with artists such as Bobby Valentino’s, Ginuwine, Pit Bull, Chris Brown and Missy Elliot and is currently teaching at Evolution Dance Studio in Los Angeles.
 
Produced by BOI, Marco El Mago and Jose Lopez, Axxent’s debut album “De Corazon” is set to take the music scene by storm.
