“Alarma delivers a high-energy fusion of world-alternative, bilingual, neo-Latin dance music from Los Angeles. Drawing on cumbia, alternativo, reggaeton, and reggae, their songs explore themes of empowerment, redemption, and global justice. For several years this band has rocked clubs, schools and festivals throughout California. Alarma has performed at benefit concerts for KPFK 90.7 FM (e.g. Voz Canto y Lucha!). They have also contributed music to raise funds for Radio Totopo, an indigenous community radio station in Oaxaca, Mexico, and for KPFK Los Angeles 90.7 FM.”

“Curandera” narrates the tale of a medicine woman whose spirit weaves through an assortment of cultures and time periods. When we have lost our way, the Curandera is one of those great healers and teachers who has been known to come find us, re-connecting us with nature and our inner potential. With fast-paced percussion, melodic flamenco rock-inspired riffs, and a pulsating dance beat, the song pays homage to a universal feminine energy and wisdom. Look closely, Las Curanderas are all around us. Every community has its own Curanderas!

Alarma’s most recent album “World Ignition” is on iTunes, Rhapsody, Amazon MP3, Deezer, etc. Download it today and groove out!

When the album came out, the  Huffington Post had this to say in a feature about the band:

Alarma evokes a true world music sound, drawing on a wide range of influences from the Middle East, Latin America, Africa and filtering it through an American pop structure…”

And, our first full length album, “Ripe Conditions,” features 10 songs…the CD’s have been selling out but it’s always on iTunes!

We’re about to drop new CD “World Ignition!” 8 new tracks putting our hearts on our sleeve…bringing some of our deepest stories of loss, triumph and personal inspiration, with ska, calypso rock, cumbia and beyond…it’s an album about finding our voice and persevering to make a stand.

We’ll be playing a latin set at De de Los Muertos, so come see us at Olvera Street at the end of October!

 

Got mentioned in San Luis Obispo’s newspaper on our first visit to this college town. The show rocked and we will certainly be coming back to serve all the locals and students with their need for sweaty dancing and skankin’!

“I’m checking out Alarma’s video for “The Last Train,” a cool mix of sepia-tone faux retro footage of a couple falling in love mixed with footage of a guitar-accordion-drum trio delivering their indie rock mix that shares some similarities with the likes of Gogol Bordello and Manu Chao—you can hear influences such as Latin cumbia, reggae, ska, African, Middle Eastern, and flamenco sounds. Check them out this Tuesday, Dec. 15, when the L.A.-based band, which fluctuates between three and six members, plays Frog and Peach (9 p.m.; 21-and-older; free).”

Take this musical journey into new dimensions in sound: it’s rock with a world music twist. Traditional meets modern. Some fist pumping anthems and some laid back grooves. Eclectic ska and cumbia weaving tales about the joy and sacrifice of people determined to live full lives with dignity. Hit the streets and the dancefloors with this album from one of LA’s most versatile up and coming independent groups.
