NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Pandora and SiriusXM announced today that Pandora Live: El Pulso featuring Farruko and Paloma Mami will return to The Academy in Los Angeles on December 4. Pandora listeners who are 21+ can RSVP for the free event HERE.
El Pulso, Pandora’s destination station for Latin music, features the most exciting and impactful contemporary artists who are breaking through genre barriers.
The special Pandora Live: El Pulso performance will be hosted by Pandora’s Head of Latin Music, Marco Juarez. Fans unable to attend the show can still share in the excitement during SiriusXM’s live broadcast of the event on Caliente (ch. 158).
El Pulso headliner Farruko is considered a musical phenomenon for his great versatility. Farruko has consistently demonstrated his dominion over most sub-genres of urban music like Reggaeton, Hip-Hop, R&B and Trap Latino. He has also proved his adaptability by crossing over into pop, bachata, mambo and vallenato genres. He’s had multiple songs featured on Pandora’s Top Spins chart, including the recent remix of “Calma” which was an instant hit around the globe and recently achieved diamond certification.
Breakthrough artist, Paloma Mami recently landed on Billboard’s 2019 21 Under 21 list and was also named one of their “Female Latin Artists to Keep On Your Radar.” She made it to #1 on Pandora’s Predictions Chart and is the first Chilean of her generation to sign to a major international record label. With a delicate but powerful voice, Paloma Mami’s music is a distinct fusion of Latin Urban, R&B and Trap/Soul.
“With the west coast edition of El Pulso returning to Hollywood, LA-area audiences will once again be treated to all the energy and excitement that only a Pandora Live Latin show can provide,” says Marcos Juarez, Pandora’s Head of Latin Music. “The line-up of Puerto Rican reggaeton superstar, Farruko, one of the most sought after acts in Latin urban music today and emerging sensation Paloma Mami, one of the most promising young artists in contemporary Latin pop, is sure to guarantee an evening of perreo and puro party!”
Pandora Live attendees will be treated to unique onsite experiences and giveaways from sponsors including 76®, McDonald’s®, TitleMax® and Visible.
