Opening for da Mata will be Locos Por Juana, a Grammy and Latin Grammy nominated bilingual Latin Jam-Band, most notably recognized for their energetic live performance and unique fusion of Latin, Caribbean, and American rhythms. Locos por Juana’s sound is a distinct one, a hybrid drawing not only from the band members’ diverse backgrounds but also from other countries’ musical styles as well. #EquipeVDM
