  • Formed in 2015, Los Dreamers is the duo of Raul Pacheco (Ozomatli) and Shawn King (DeVotchka). Producing songs with artists Ceci Bastida, Alec Ounsworth (Clap Your Hands Say Yeah), and Luz Mendoza, the duo focuses on tales of immigration and American identity.

    The Bohemian Nights set will feature Diana Gameros, Luz Mendoza of Y La Bamba, Ben Wysocki of the Fray, and Brian Martinez of the Gaslamp Killer.

    Producing songs to accompany the 2014 play "Dreaming Sin Fronteras,"€ which dramatized stories of immigration and American identity, the duo collaborated with artists Ceci Bastida, Alec Ounsworth (Clap Your Hands Say Yeah) and Luz Mendoza.

    "€œSongs veer between English and Spanish, €”often in the same three-minute track, and flicker from psychedelic sambas to techno-funk jams at the drop of a hat...they sport similar refrains, tracing wanderers and loners, outsiders and friends, across the American Southwest."€ -LA Weekly.

    Tracks feature like-minded guests. "The Others"€ is a soul/hip hop commentary on human equality featuring a duet with Slimkid3 of the Pharcyde and La Marisoul (Marisol Hernandez) of La Santa Cecilia.

    The mixtape feel of these heartfelt stories takes a stance of pro-immigrant, pro-immigration reform.
