As if Robert "El Robotico Livar"of the cumbia crossover Bombasta Barrio Big Band didn't do enough to build San Antonio's creative economy, he's stepped in to host Radio Bomba, a podcast on SA's cultural scene. Yesterday, Radio Bomba debuted the third installation of their podcast on San Antonio music, speaking with Femina-X frontwoman Daniela Riojas. In an artist-to-artist Q+A, Livar and Riojas spoke about Femina-X's otherwordly pop, her visual art and photography, the process of creating digital music and her move from Eagle Pass to San Antonio.
The conversation with Riojas is the third episode of Radio Bomba, recorded in their studio above Alamo Music downtown. The first two editions featured Livar in conversation with SA activist rappers Third Root and Alvaro Del Norte, frontman and accordionist for Tex-Mex punk outfit Piñata Protest.
