Elena & Los Fulanos
Since 2011, DC-based bilingual folk-rock band ELENA & LOS FULANOS has been creating music that ranges from twangy, heartbreak-themed folk Americana, to soothing, introspective, violin-infused Latin rock. Influenced by front-woman Elena Lacayo’s experience growing up in two cultures (Nicaraguan and American), Elena & Los Fulanos creates a world where language and tradition meld with catchy melodies and inventive chords to enhance appreciation for diversity in an increasingly multi-cultural world. Their debut album, Miel Venenosa, earned a Washington Area Music Association (WAMMIE) nomination for Best Latin Recording in 2014 and their second album Volcán, (2017) has been hailed as “a bilingual folk album for the resistance” by the Washington City Paper.
