Eskina Opuesta – Salvadoran Ska Music

Today is Spanish Friday so this post is in Spanish. If you participated in Spanish Friday on your own blog, leave your link in comments. English translation is below!

Hoy quiero introducirles a una banda de El Salvador que se llama “Eskina Opuesta.” La música está clasificada como una mezcla de Ska y Rock con un toque de Cumbia. Las canciones y los videos son muy divertidos y creativos. También me encanta la diversidad de instrumentos utilizados en la música. Yo creo que Eskina Opuesta es super buena onda y que tienen un gran potencial para llegar a ser muy famosos fuera de El Salvador. ¿Qué opinan ustedes? Chécalo!

  1. good find Tracy!…sharing this!

  2. Interesting! I used to love (American) ska music when I was in middle school (hello, Mighty Mighty Bosstones). I forgot to link to my Spanish Friday post last week: http://lavieoverseas.com/2012/09/14/spanish-friday-el-dia-de-mudarse/.

    We are off in a mere four days! Crazy.

    • I had a classmate in high school who was constantly harassing me to listen to Mighty, Mighty Bosstones. I wasn’t into ska back then but he kept insisting I listen and give it another chance. I eventually had to admit it was good. LOL

      Four days until you’re off to live in El Salvador! … I am simultaneously jealous and excited for you :) … I’ll come visit your Spanish Friday post – thanks for playing!
