Quitate La Mascara
domingoSiete brings pride to East Los Angeles
I recently had the pleasure of witnessing an awesome concert by one of L.A.'s hottest bands at the Battle of the Bands, on October 1st at the House of Blues in Hollywood.

domingoSiete performed one of their original tunes, "Quitate la Mascara." Here is the band's bio to give you a glimpse of what makes domingoSiete so unique:
DomingoSiete was created in 1999 by Gabriel Tenorio. An illegitimate musical experiment, hence the name. DomingoSiete has been acclaimed for its ability to transcend time, space, and culture in their own compositions that are based deeply in tradition but tinged with a distinct urban, Los Angeles feel.
Domingosiete has opened for such acts as Compay Segundo of Buena Vista Social Club, Los Lobos, Ozomatli, The Slackers, and Sheryl Crow. The band has also made numerous appearances on television (pbs, nbc, kabc, LATV, Telemundo) and radio (NPR, Pacifica), as well as several films.
DomingoSiete released its second album, "Quitate la Mascara," BasicLabs, in the Summer of 2005 while on tour in Germany. In less than two years, D7 has headlined five successful European tours. D7 is also gaining airplay all over Europe and California, from Russia to Connecticut, from the Swiss Alps to Palos Verdes.
"Quitate la Mascara," has just been released on Latin Garden II, Lola's World Records, a 2 disc sampler of cutting edge Latin music around the world. KZSU called the new album: "This is just some really good shit, straight up....if you like any Latin music even a little, you should give this a whirl."
DomingoSiete recently placed two songs on the soundtrack for the film, "How the Garcia Girls Spent Their Summer," directed by Georgina Reidel Garcia, which premiered at Sundance Film Festival in 2005 and a song on the new Larry Clark film, "Wassup Rockers."
The band truly gets your feet moving and your heart pumping! You can't help but get up and dance for these guys. You can genuinely tell they are having a good time and are out to make sure you have a good time as well!
