Latin Artists at Coachella

Caifanes With 182 confirmed acts this year, Coachella has a little something for everyone—unless you're into throat singing (sorry Huun-Huur-Tu fans). But if you're into Latin music, there will be quite a few acts to help add a little sazón to the whole affair. The big news is that Mexican rock legends Caifanes are reuniting and have even managed to get second-line billing on Day One of the festival. Other Latin acts include Colombian alternative outfit Bomba Estéreo, L.A.-based collective Ozomatli, Brazilian baile funksters CSS, Chilean alt-rockers Los Bunkers, Omar Rodríguez-López from The Mars Volta, Spanish synth-pop quartet Delorean, and hardcore-punks-turned-mariachis The Bronx. Of course, we'd love to see even more Latin artists make the list next year, but the these bands will surely put on a good show for desert-bound festival fans this time out.
