La Misa Negra

La Misa Negra (The Black Mass) is an out-of-the-box kind of band. Founded by accordionist Marco Polo Santiago, the Oakland, California-based group is fronted by not one, but three women, including singer Diana Trujillo, who play an infectious, danceable blend of cumbia and funk. 

After raising $15,635 in a Kickstarter campaign, the group finished recording its sophomore album and are coming out with a bang. “Dueña de mi,” released strategically on International Women’s Day (March 8), is a fiercely feminine anthem that affirms a woman’s right to choose, but makes you dance in the process.

The video, a mix of the band’s performance along with images of women and men marching for equal rights in America’s streets, is an unapologetically pro-choice call to action (“I’m the owner of all my body, and I won’t be told when to procreate,” says the chorus).
