El Santo Golpe is a musical group from Riverside, CA, born in 2016. This project was formed with the goal of creating an original sound and help promote the diversity of cultures, as well as the diversity of rhythms and music in the world of “Afro-Latin” music.
Influenced by the different artistic and musical experiences in their lives, a group of friends decided to create this project, where they would fuse different styles of dance and sounds such as what we can find in Cumbia, Son Jarocho, Garifuna, West African music, Poetry, Ballet Folklorico and much more, all of this to create the fun world of El Santo Golpe.
