Summary

Hurray For The Riff Raff will perform with Matthew Santos in June for free as part of the Millenium Park Summer Music Series. 

What We Say

Hurray for the Riff Raff is roots-conscious folk music, appalachian rags that share a similar root with Spanish troubadours.  After all, the blues is the same in any language. Alynda Segarra brings an interconnected set of introspective songs, grounded in her eclectic rustic root style, yet adorned by elements of son montuno, plena, and a kind of Mink De Ville retrodoowop rock.  Segarra's voice speaks with a husky weariness that coexists with a nave curiosity. It's the voice of a rebel who wanted everyone to think she was so tough, and nobody could take her down, but at the same time was yearning for love and magic, some kind of an awakening.
