Cumbia with a Milwaukee twist on 'La Alternativa'

El Sebas

El Sebas

This episode had everything and more: energetic beats, new-wave rhythms and a Milwaukee-style Cumbia courtesy of El Sebas, who delighted us with an exclusive preview of his upcoming EP, MilwauCumbia, by sharing lead single “U.” This track perfectly blends hometown pride with irresistible Cumbia rhythms, guaranteed to get you dancing.

Sebas will perform during the final weekend of Summerfest on the Aurora Pavilion stage as part of a lineup of La Alternativa regulars. He starts things at 3:15 p.m., followed by Angelica Garcia (4:30 p.m.), Reyna Tropical (5:45 p.m.) and Cimafunk (7 p.m.).

We had a blast on this episode, sharing a viral Post Malone cover of “Rockstar” by Los Master Plus and introducing the city to new music from Gus, Irepelusa and more. Listen to the whole thing below, and check out the archives on our Mixcloud page.
