Riccie Oriach - (Set time: 11:00 PM)
Riccie Oriach
Riccie Oriach emerges as a fresh tide of tropical rhythms that transits and expands the latin rock sounds and the fusion of music from the Caribbean. His songs are a mixture of day by day experiences and fiction, stories with characters that are made visible as you listen, music with the color of the tropics, melodies that ask for you to dance, creating a connection with the audience. This unity and empathy are completed by the characteristic sense of humor of the artist, present not only in his lyrics and melodies but in his live performances next to a band of hallucinating friends (translation of the name for the band), capable of spreading the fun without limits that they live in the stage. The genres “son, bachata, merengue, cumbia, gagá, rock, jazz, metal, guaguancó, sarandunga” emerge as if they came from a pandora box, surreal as the island he inhabit, happy as a hometown party, colorful as the caribbean. At the moment Riccie is promoting his first EP Viaje al Infinito, a record of 6 songs under the musical production of Federico López Schaper. The EP was released simultaneously to its first Video clip with the same name Viaje Al Infinito. The first two years have rapidly taken the artist and his band to several scenarios within the Dominican Republic (Santo Domingo, La Vega, Cabarete, San Francisco, Bávaro, Santiago, La Romana) and outside of the country being able to share with audiences abroad. In the month of September 2017, Riccie Oriach along with the band members of La Alucinante Banda, toured in Colombia performing 10 times in two different cities. He came back to the DR and gave a show filled with so much energy so that his audience would live an intense experience along the band.

Vic Contreras Y La Alucinante Banda
Vic Contreras strengthen his sonorous personality in his project with the Alucinante Banda. An artist that goes along in his way rescuing and reassessing his roots. He is echo of its origins, he merges, modernizes and fusionates them within each other, through his guitar he travels the seas that surround the island of DR and builds his own yet global sound. The songs, musical arrangements and compositions show the respect towards music, they are the result of perseverance, constant learning in a share path with many great artists from different generations as well as the emerging Dominican music scene.
Vic Contreras proposal is sutil and powerful, clear but risky, capable of connecting with those beating rhythms from the Caribbean and Latin America. Sensitive to the world and its challenges, Vic phases the hostility of the Latin American’s cities, trusting that the music can save us from alienation, lethargy and disagreement between ourselves. For that matter, in this phase of his career he handing his songs over, motorizing in the stage the unstoppable power of La Alucinante Banda, an explosive charge of diversity that invites the enjoyment to all who dares to listen.
At the moment he is promoting his first singles: No La Controles, a true message of reflection for men and an offering to women's freedom; and Lavando, a song to the cycles in relationships and a palette of exquisite arrangements with all the seasoning of the Caribbean, a musicality that demands comfortable shoes and dedication to enjoyment.
