La Misa Negra is an 8-piece band from Oakland, California that plays a unique blend of 1950's and 60's style cumbia and high-energy, Afro-Colombian dance music. Powered by horn and accordion-driven riffs, a fierce rhythm section, and a vintage Colombian sound, La Misa Negra delivers an electrifying performance that explodes with infectious dance grooves and punk rock energy. Since their live debut in the fall of 2011, they have toured the US, playing shows and festivals with the likes of Red Hot Chili Peppers, Stevie Wonder, Florence and the Machine, Lenny Kravitz, Arcade Fire, Thievery Corporation, George Clinton, Ozomatli, Lila Downs, Budos Band, Ana Tijoux, and Bomba Estereo. On the strength of their wild and one-of-a-kind shows, La Misa Negra has gained a reputation as one of the most exciting live bands to emerge from the Bay Area in recent years, garnering a diverse fan base that transcends musical, cultural, and generational divides.


La Misa Negra's debut album is available on iTunes: 

Behind the microphone, Estrella Hood is the dynamic voice of World Hood, and the voice heard throughout the group’s self titled debut release. Influenced by her childhood soundtrack as the daughter of Mexican immigrants on the West Coast, Estrella Hood brings a rich blend of her Chicana heritage and a dose of California sunshine to the World Hood project.

In touch with her roots in both Cumbia and 808­powered West Coast Hip Hop, Estrella Hood combines culture and kick drums relocating traditional ceremonies to the dancehall.

Since her first time in the studio with El Indio, Estrella Hood has been weaving those positive vibrations into her bass heavy production style and watching it flourish.

With roots in Africa, India, and California Dj/Producer El Indio is the mind behind the beats and the man behind the boards. He brings a trademarked global sound to his DJ sets. World Hood was the first self­titled project completed alongside wife Estella.
