Las Krudas, La Prima y su Banda, Xemilla, & Kick It!

Release Date: 2008-11-19

This all-female Cuban hip-hop group is best known for its rugged feminist lyrics and Afro-Cuban beats. Their lyrics often criticize the common perception of beauty and the traditional female role in Cuba and the U.S. — lyrical content goes a little something like this: “La Gorda llegó/La Gorda soy yo” (The Fat Lady has arrived/I am the Fat Lady”) They’re an influential group, representing a strong feminist presence in a male-dominated underground scene. $5, 8pm,
Limelight, 2718 N. St. Mary’s, (210) 735-7775.
