"Irish-Latin Band La Unica Breaks the Mold (Featured Interview)"

"Diversity is the driving force behind Irish-Latin band La Unica...From the fiddle and tin whistle laden 'Silver Spear Maid Behind the Bar,' which quickly launches into an Irish-Latin hybrid with horns, percussion and Spanish vocals, to a Latin-inspired cover of U2’s 'With or Without You,' La Unica’s first studio effort truly runs the gamut of the band’s collective musical background."

"La Unica" - Self-Released Debut Album (April 2013)

Bio

Based in Washington, DC and founded in 2009, La Unica is celebrating the April 2013 release of their debut, self-titled album.

La Unica's foundation in Irish and Latin music, while World-based, is so emblematic of the diverse, national American experience that to combine the two genres results in something completely familiar. It's not surprising that the band looks to a range of musicians for inspiration, including the Chieftains, Gipsy Kings, Santana, The Pogues, Ozomatli, the Cranberries, and Bela Fleck, to name a few.

Marked by their energetic live shows--which have earned notoriety from VA to New York City--La Unica makes the traditional modern. La Unica makes Salsa Dancing to a Jig possible. And, most importantly, La Unica makes the Tin Whistle the coolest kid on the block.
