Ceci Bastida
Ceci Bastida
Born and raised in Tijuana and now living in Los Angeles, Ceci Bastida joined the band Tijuana NO when she was just 15 and became one of the first women to rise in the ranks of contemporary Latin rock. Their song “Pobre de Ti” and their cover of The Clash’s “Spanish Bombs” are now considered rock en español classics. After she left the band, Bastida worked as a junior high school history teacher in Tijuana and then spent eight years as part of the touring band of Julieta Venegas. Bastida embarked on her solo career in 2006 with the ep Front BC, and in 2010 released Veo La Marea (I See the Tide). She is currently collaborating with members of Devotchka and Ozomatli on the music for Dreaming Sin Fronteras, a new musical based on the stories of undocumented youth. Her new solo album, La Edad de la Violencia (The Age of Violence) includes songs inspired by the rise of everyday violence in the US and Mexico—from the drug war to the Sandy Hook shooting and the Boston Marathon bombing—and by Haruki Murakami’s novel Kafka on the Shore.
DJ Francesca Harding

Her Dj mixes have been featured on Jay Z’s blog, Life and Times with her mixtape 'Ciao Verano' as well as the El Sonido show on Seattle’s 90.3 FM. She has graced the pages of LA Weekly and Parlour Magazine and most recently won the coveted role of Dj on TNT's latest show, Agent X. With a broad taste in music and impressive technical skills, it is no surprise that Francesca Harding continues her reign as one of the most sought-after Dj's in LA and beyond.
