Dos Santos

From jazz-tinged psychedelia to dissonant cumbia, Chicago-based quintet Dos Santos is at the forefront of a new era of Latinx alternative music, deftly bridging pan-Latin and progressive sounds to capture the idealized aesthetics of 21st-century América. Hailed as one of Chicago's most impactful marquee performers, Dos Santos pride themselves on the power of their live shows, as well as their ability to seamlessly distill pan-Latin American and progressive musical sounds.

In March of 2015, they released their self-titled debut, Dos Santos, and subsequently toured the United States, making appearances at SXSW, the Pachanga Latino Music Festival, and the Ruido Fest Latin Alternative Music Festival along the way. In 2016, the band released their follow-up EP Fonografic on Electric Cowbell Records—produced by Grammy Award-winning Beto Martínez—and subsequently teamed up with Money Chicha to release a 7" vinyl split on Sonorama Discos. Their highly-anticipated debut LP, Logos (2018), is available worldwide via International Anthem.

The group’s five members (Peter Vale, Alex Chavez, Daniel Villarreal-Carrillo, Jaime Garza, Nathan Karagianis) have their own storied careers in a range of styles—including jazz, R&B/soul, traditional Mexican folk, punk, cumbia, salsa, and electronica—in addition to a history of critical involvement in arts education and social justice organizing.
