And now for a Tiny Desert Concert — that’s when local bands come into the KJZZ studios to play a couple songs for us and talk a bit about the music.

Hear from Las Chollas Peligrosas. The band is very new — less than a year old — but already has a strong following. The group is known for blending different styles of Latin music, as well as American roots styles like blues and folk, and singing songs in both English and Spanish.

The Show spoke with the band’s percussionist Andria Bunnell, and she started by talking about how the band identifies its own sound.

Las Chollas Peligrosas will be playing at La Flor de Calabaza on September 29.
