AfroTaino & Maas Building present SESSION : Alfonsina, Roomtone, Morir Soñando Listening Party

On May 22, 2019, the series kicks off with the Philadelphia debut of Alfonsina, the Uruguayan singer/multi instrumentalist. After touring and collaborating with legendary experimental hiphop producer/artist Tricky, she went on a 3-year streak of winning multiple Graffiti awards (Uruguay’s “GRAMMYs”), including Best New Artist in 2015. In preparation for her new project, she’ll be performing an intimate set of her chart-toppers and unheard, new material. 

The event will also host an Official Listening Party for the soon-to-be-released sophomore album 'Morir Soñando' from Josue Lora + Nota G. The artists - formerly known as Agudos Clef - drew attention with their debut LP, Teoria, with the lead single, “Raices”. The song & video were loved for being a rich, humble musical & visual tribute to the act’s roots & their first homeland: The Dominican Republic. 

The new album will be released Spring/Summer 2019, and feature artists like Acentoh and Calma Carmona, with productions by Grammy winning producer Ivan Barias (Justin Timberlake, Rick Ross, Musiq Soulchild, etc), and Philly jazzpunk keys-n-drum duo Trap Rabbit. More on this lineup to come. 

Event starts at 8PM. Suggested donation is $8.00. Refreshments too. 

Location is The Maas Building - 1325 N. Randolph Street, Philadelphia PA #afrotaino2019

Doors 8:00 / Show 8:30 / $12 adv / $15 day-of

The Chamanas, nominated for a Latin Grammy in 2016, are an Indie pop fusion ensemble whom utilize a unique combination of various styles and genres ranging from traditional Mexican folklore, pop, Brazilian Bossa Nova, Indie, Danzón, among other obscure and synthetic sounds. The Chamanas will release their new album NEA II (pronounced: NĀ-uh (2)) July 20th. This is The Chamanas first english album which will be supported by a nationwide tour complimented with a public relations campaign provided by The Syndicate and will receive tour sponsorship and marketing support from the global Mexican soda company, Jarritos.

Lady HD is a bicoastal Psych-Funk duo formed in 2015. The band is a collaboration between songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Ciaran Wall and producer/drummer Dusty Moon. The two met in Los Angeles, both playing for the group Lemmo. When Lemmo disbanded, Ciaran returned to Philadelphia and Dusty stayed in LA. Their collaboration continued virtually, with Ciaran writing the songs and then sending on to Dusty for production. Drawing from the distinct influence of growing up in a Peruvian household, Ciaran conjures up words and sounds inspired by his unique upbringing. Dusty, son of American composer Guy Moon (Cartoon Network, Nickelodeon), uses his knowledge accrued from growing up in a studio to mix/produce the tracks and add a rhythmic backbone.

Balún / Mons Vi / Grandchildren (duo) @ PhilaMOCA

SAVE THE DATE: THURSDAY AUGUST 23rd - AfroTaino Productions & present Balún + Mons Vi + Grandchildren (duo) - live in concert. The Puerto Rico/Brooklyn-based classically-trained indie act brings their ‘dreambow’ (shoegazer dream pop meets reggaeton/dembow) sound back to #Philly! #afrotainosummer2018

Balún self-identify as transnational. The quartet that broke out of the San Juan indie scene a decade ago has since undergone a formational odyssey through the industry, academia, and the stateside Puerto Rican experience. Balún's long awaited sophomore album Prisma Tropical focuses an incredibly wide field of genres and influences into a revelatory sound that evokes both of the band's homes and the distance between them.


Based in Brooklyn by way of Miami, Mons Vi combines an electronic-influenced, lo-fi aesthetic with incisive lyrics – thriving in emotionally-charged territory rarely ventured to in the world of indie pop. In late 2015, Matthew Hershoff recorded “Stay,” in his Brooklyn bedroom after hearing it in a dream. He then asked Adrianne Gonzalez, his friend and fellow Miami-transplant, to sing on the track with him, and Mons Vi was born. Joined by Michael Cohen on drums and Alex Faron on bass, Mons Vi is a group of childhood friends making music for the digital age.


Grandchildren(duo) is a band from Philadelphia whose multi-instrumentalist members trade performance roles often. Aleks Martray, Russell Brodie, Roman Salcic, John Vogel, Tristan Palazzolo, Adam Katz.
