BBC Covers Latin Ska Scene in South Central LA

This is cool – there’s a nice bit on BBC about the bands and fans of a growing Latin Ska scene in South Central Los Angeles. There’s long been a great tradition of Latin influenced Ska music, and Ska en Espanol – including bands like La Plebe from San Francisco and Upground from East LA. Wow even as I write this I Google “Latin Ska LA” and find a recent LA Times article on the subject! Buster the Ska Doggie approves.

Buster the Ska Doggie

Buster the Ska Doggie was born on July 4th, 2008 when The Uptones released their epic Skankin' Foolz Unite! album. Jesse Michaels drew Buster for the record cover and Buster leaped off of it and started dancing around. Before long Buster had amassed a massive collection of ska records and friends and has been to every single ska show on earth, usually attending at least 100 around the world, all at the same time. Don't ask how he does it. Buster blogs at and you also can find him on FB and Twitter. W00f!
