Guest co-host: ELENA LACAYO
Elena Lacayo is a singer-songwriter and guitarist for Elena & Los Fulanos, a bilingual folk rock band based in Washington, DC. Since 2011, they have been creating music ranging from twangy, heartbreak-themed folk Americana, to soothing, introspective, violin-infused Latin rock. Originally from Managua, Nicaragua, Lacayo identifies herself as both American and Nicaraguan and her music reflects this identity as a melding of Latino and American genres. Elena & Los Fulanos debut album, Miel Venenosa, can be found on BandCamp, CDBaby and Itunes and atwww.elenalosfulanos.com.
