¡La Batalla!

Last night was round 1 of La Ley's "La Batalla," a battle of the bands designed to promote the musical talent of Central and Eastern North Carolina and provide up-and-coming artists with guidance and the opportunity for exposure.

Four bands competed in the first round:
  • Revelación Sevilla, a Raleigh-based Cumbia Tropical group comprising four brothers and a cousin originally from Hidalgo, MX;

  • SDO Musical, A familial, Raleigh-based Tierra Caliente ensemble

  • Positivo Show, a Tierra Caliente ensemble from Goldsboro

  • Rubén y su Potencia, a Raleigh-based Tierra Caliente group.

And the winner was ...

Positivo Show!

And here's a bonus vid of Rubén Y Su Potencia:

Positivo Show will advance to the final round along with the winners of the next two primimary rounds (dates and venues TBA). The winner of La Batalla will receive an 8 hour recording session and demo produced by a recognized music recording studio and $1,000 cash, in addition to airplay on LA LEY 96.9 FM.
