Los Rakas / by Maria Hinojosa | September 2, 2011

Los Rakas

Raka Dun and Raka Rich are originally from Panama. They came to the US in their teens with their “camisetas bordadas” or fly embroidered tank tops. But now the two cousins are making it big with their own twist on Bay Area indie Hip-Hop by adding Panamanian Folk influenced reggae.

It’s a unique sound that’s making the Oakland-based Los Rakas one of the hottest up-and-coming duos. Los Rakas join Maria Hinojosa to talk about their new album, Chancletas Y Camisetas Bordada.
