Featuring Guest Appearances From Members of Santana, The Klezmatics, Jaguares, and Los Abandoned, The New Album Is Winning Rave Reviews From the Associated Press, Washington Post, and Village Voice

“On Hip Hop Hoodios’ new album [“Agua Pa’ La Gente”], cameos from members of Jaguares, Santana, and The Klezmatics help make the socially conscious anti-corporate playa-hating funnier than any Beastie Boys punchlines recently.” -VILLAGE VOICE

Further evidence that Latin hip-hop knows no cultural boundaries, Latino-Jewish urban music collective Hip Hop Hoodios will be performing at the Salute to Israel Parade in New York City along Fifth Avenue on Sunday, June 5th. The annual parade is a non-partisan, non-political celebration of the existence of the State of Israel and a tribute to its people and their achievements. One-hundred thousand marchers and close to one-million spectators take part in this event annually. This year marks the first time that a prominent Latin act has been booked to perform at the Parade.

Hip Hop Hoodios is an allstar Latino-Jewish urban music collective led by Josue Noriega and Abraham Velez that includes participation from members of such notable Latin & Jewish acts as Santana, Jaguares, The Klezmatics, Orixa, Los Mocosos, Midnight Minyan, and Los Abandoned. The LA/NY-based bicoastal band has just released its full length debut “Agua Pa’ La Gente” (Jazzheads Records). The new album represents the follow-up to Hip Hop Hoodios’ acclaimed 2002 debut ‘Raza Hoodia’ EP, which sold 5000 copies as a self-released title.

The new album is highlighted by lead-off track “Agua Pa’ La Gente”, a high-octane and socially-conscious Latin-alternative vamp. “1492” represents a growth in musical maturity for the band, as Hip Hop Hoodíos are joined by Frank London of The Klezmatics for a soul-jazz exploration of how the Spanish Inquisition resulted in millions of Latinos unknowingly having Jewish roots. The new album was produced by Happy Sanchez (Los Mocosos, Latin Soul Syndicate) and features 12 spanking new tracks of Latino-Jewish madness, as well as remixes, seahorses, and lord knows what else.
