  • Los Dreamers is the duo of Raul Pacheco (Ozomatli) and Shawn King (DeVotchka). Producing songs to accompany the 2014 play Dreaming Sin Fronteras, which dramatized stories of immigration & American identity, the duo collaborated with artists Ceci Bastida, Alec Ounsworth (CYHSY), and Luz Mendoza.
    "Songs 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' a soul/ hip hop commentary on human equality, is 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.
