Tickeri Expands Partnership with Bandsintown to Allow In-App Ticket Purchases for Latino Music Fans Across the United States

Tickeri Expands Partnership with Bandsintown to Allow In-App Ticket Purchases for Latino Music Fans  Across the United States

Today, Tickeri expands its partnership with Bandsintown by introducing seamless eCommerce ticketing experiences for Latino event seekers who use the Bandsintown event discovery platform. The new feature enables ticket purchases from the largest host of Latino events in the United States, Tickeri, directly within the Bandsintown App, bridging the traditional gap between event discovery and ticket buying. By leveraging Braintree Extend, the feature removes clunky redirects and unifies previously disparate payment systems -- reducing friction and vastly improving user experience overall. Tickeri fully believes that contextual commerce partnerships like this - which integrate brands and services to reach customers in the right place at the right time - are the way forward for eCommerce, and is excited to pave the way for the Latino community.

 

Of the company s expanded partnership with Bandsintown, Tickeri CTO and Co-Founder Javier Gonzalez said "Strategic partnerships with key brands like Bandsintown allow Latinos to finally feel represented in mainstream technologies within the US. While the Latino population and purchasing power is growing massively, technology and media have under-served the Latino community for years. It s refreshing to see Latinos have a voice in the innovation of services and products that impact our community across the US."

 

For Bandsintown, the integration allowed fans from the fastest growing genre on the platform to enjoy a more fluid experience. "This is an important ticketing integration for our community, in 2017 Latin music events saw the largest growth by genre on Bandsintown, and we re excited to make this ticketing experience as seamless as possible for fans." - Fabrice Sergent, Bandsintown Managing Partner.

 

The company believes that, while technology and user experiences have been improving in the non-Latino space for years, Latino users are often a second thought in most mainstream apps and services. This forces users to jump through unnecessary hoops and navigate multiple loosely connected platforms in order to discover, buy, listen, or watch their favorite content. This expanded partnership represents landmark collaboration in the interest of engaging the US Latino Market and aims to emphasize the importance of giving Latino users a clear, concise path to great online experiences.

 

Tech Talk:

Prior to the release of this feature, Tickeri analyzed traffic originating from various event discovery platforms and social media. Data from event discovery platforms, such as Bandsintown, saw high conversion rates. With this in mind, Tickeri aimed to further reduce friction created by the context switching required from event discovery apps to in-browser checkout.

 

Tickeri s long-standing relationship with Bandsintown and a combined vision for the power of contextual commerce and embracing the US Latino market allowed for discussions of further integration. Tickeri worked closely with Bandsintown to integrate Braintree Extend and help deliver secure, seamless payment experiences for Bandsintown and Tickeri. Bandsintown created additional in-app checkout flows for events listed on Tickeri, allowing quick and easy transactions without having to leave the Bandsintown mobile apps.

 

Tickeri joins Eventbrite and Ticketmaster in providing in-app ticket purchases within the popular Bandsintown platform.

Fito Páez thrills over 25,000 people at Vive Latino Festival in Mexico

Fito Páez thrills over 25,000 people at Vive Latino Festival in Mexico

 

Last Sunday, the known Argentine musician, composer and singer Fito Páez performed on the second stage of the nineteenth edition of the Vive Latino Festival with more than 25,000 spectators at the Foro Sol (Mexico City). With an impacting electrictrifying rock show, Páez delighted the crowd with many of his hits such as "El amor después del amor", "11 y 6", "Naturaleza sangre", "Circo Beat", "Brillante sobre el mic" and "Ciudad de pobres corazones".

In the concerts set list, Páez included two tracks from his new album: "Tu vida mi vida" and "La ciudad liberada", a song that gives title to his new production that was released last November. This 18-track record is the 23rdalbum in the career of one of the most important icons of Argentine rock. Additionally, he has 4 live albums, 12 compilations and 3 more recorded albums in collaboration with other artists.

Originally from the city of Rosario, in the Northwest of Argentina, Páez continues to collect praise for his new album both in his country and abroad. For many publications, including Rolling Stone magazine, "La ciudad liberada" is the best album by Fito Páez in the last 20 years".


Undoubtedly, Fito is one of the most representative figures of rock in Spanish with a work resume full of memorable records and unforgettable songs that since the beginning of his career have had a major projection throughout Latin America and Spain.

His new single and video "Tu vida mi vida" gives nod to Charly Garcia who is a constant inspiration, but at the same time is made 100% of Páez DNA. It is in mid-tempo that according to Fito: "has something that does not belong in the genre of love songs, it is not the classic song that you sing to a girlfriend. It talks about the fragility of women and men; of that hug that one looks for every day".

Enanitos Verdes y Hombres G, conclude their Mexical Leg of their Huevos Revueltos Tour with a sold out at the Arena CDMX

 

More than 20,000 people gathered to witness the closing of the Mexican leg of the Enanitos Verdes and Hombres G tour, Huevos Revueltos, at the Arena CDMX on Saturday, March 17 in the Mexican capital (Mexico City.) With a sold out closing show for this leg, the two groups that are both indisputable references of pop-rock in Spanish and icons of the 80 s and 90 s, end a series of massive sold out concerts throughout Mexico that included, among other great shows, the Estadio Caliente in Tijuana with the capacity of 22,000 people, the Auditorio Telmex in Guadalajara of 9,000 and the Arena Monterrey of 14,000.

With a production team of more than 90 people filming the concert at the Arena CDMX for a DVD that will be released by Sony, the entire concert lasted over 2 hours, full of the greatest hits from both the Argentinian Enanitos Verdes and Spanish Hombres G, interpreted by the members of both groups on stage as a single band. The result of the musical dynamic that was created during the concert did not fail and managed to meet the public s expectations, who in unity with both groups on stage were singing the choruses of many of their known classic songs that represent more than a decade of music history and have become immortal.

The Huevos Revueltos tour has already been through other countries with sold out performances in stadiums such as Peru, Ecuador, Guatemala, and Costa Rica with a capacity of 15,000 to 35,000 people. In April, the tour will arrive to Bogota, Medellín, Pasto and Popayan, Colombia.

Jenny And The Mexicats Celebra Su Décimo Aniversario con Gira en EEUU y Europa

Jenny And The Mexicats Celebra Su Décimo Aniversario con Gira en EEUU y Europa

 

Jenny and the Mexicats, un grupo que nos demuestra que no hay fronteras cuando de música se trata, anunciaron su regreso a los EEUU con una tercer gira que los llevará a 19 ciudades a partir de este 28 de febrero. La primer parada será en Washington, DC y las fechas se intercalan con su gira Europea donde el crecimiento y popularidad del cuarteto se ha intensificado en el último año, obligándolos a extender sus giras y su estancia.

El grupo formado por una inglesa, dos mexicanos y un español, celebran así su décimo aniversario de formación no solo con presentaciones en dos continentes sino además con un nostálgico video musical que revela de manera muy íntima y personal sus viajes desde sus inicios, sus vivencias detrás de escenarios o de estudio a lo largo de estos 10 años.

Jenny and the Mexicats es un grupo que no se parece a nadie. Es una fusión de nacionalidades y personalidades, una banda que tiene una historia muy particular más que nada accidental, teniendo sus inicios en Madrid bajo el nombre de Pachucos y la Princesa, en junio del 2008.

Todo empezó cuando Icho (contrabajo) invita a Jenny a vivir en Madrid. Jenny, trompetista y cantante con 20 años de edad había llegado al lugar correcto. Icho llamó al mejor guitarrista que conocía, Pantera, un músico amante de los Misfits y otros grupos de punk, con técnica flamenca y muy versátil. Icho y él habían tocado por varios años en un grupo de rockabilly y en otro de punk en su ciudad natal en México.

Pantera propuso a un colega que tocaba el cajón en lugar de batería, y así llegó David, un extraordinario cajón español, con el cual ya había compartido escenario en el mundo del flamenco. Así es como nace la pequeña aventura de una niña inglesa que emigra a España en busca de nuevos sonidos, y da lugar a Jenny and the Mexicats, algo especial, una fusión sin etiquetas ni prejuicios musicales.

El primer disco llegó:  Jenny And The Mexicats y con esta producción lograron obtener disco de Oro. Este álbum en inglés y español les dio tres éxitos con los que se dieron a conocer internacionalmente y los puso en boca de todos: Verde Más AlláMe Voy a Ir y Flor.
                                                                                       
En 2014 sacaron su segundo disco  OME  y el primer sencillo "Labios" formó parte de la banda sonora de la película "Amor de mis Amores" dirigida por Manolo Caro. El disco tiene nuevas canciones con todo el espíritu Mexicat y mezcla grandes ritmos, mucha energía y momentos de sensibilidad.

En Frenético Ritmo y Boulevard se notan las influencias mexicanas. La voz de David cobra más protagonismo en algunos temas como, Duele al CaminarLabios y también en Boulevard. La última canción del disco Back to Basics demuestra la forma más sencilla y emotiva de componer de Jenny, ella sola con su guitarra. Cabe destacar que todo el arte del disco y en general del grupo está a cargo de Pantera.

Jenny and the Mexicats es una combinación musical que mezcla ritmos de jazz, rockabilly, folk, flamenco, reggae, son veracruzano, country y cumbia. Lo que le imprime a Jenny and the Mexicats una personalidad única, prácticamente inimitable.

La gira por EEUU es una oportunidad para ver a una de las bandas más notables en la actualidad con un sonido único que seguramente seguirán creando escuela e influencia musical.

Natalia Clavier Celebrates 10th Anniversary with Nectar Re-Release

Natalia Clavier Celebrates 10th Anniversary with Nectar Re-Release

 

 

 

 

Natalia Clavier is celebrating the 10th anniversary of her critically-acclaimed debut album Nectar with a special re-release via Nacional Records, which is available now. Originally released on Thievery Corporation s ESL Music label, the 12-track album introduced audiences to a sonic universe of jazz, classical, Argentine folk, American soul, protest rock, and chill electronica led by Clavier s warm, soothing, breathless vocals.

 

Clavier made her Nacional Records debut with sophomore album Lumen in 2013, which was produced by Grammy-winning producer Adrian Quesada (Echocentrics, Ocote Soul Sounds, Grupo Fantasma, Brownout). The album reached #1 on iTunes.

Born and raised in Buenos Aires, Clavier’s mother exposed her at an early age to a constant and diverse stream of music. She began singing in school choirs at the age of three and was performing as a soloist in the largest concert halls in Argentina by age 11.

Clavier then moved to Barcelona where she hit the jazz circuit and launched herself into the electronic music scene by contributing vocals to house and techno singles and singing live at raves in front of thousands. It was during this time that she met fellow Argentinian ex-pat Federico Aubele who had just released his debut album on Thievery Corporation’s record label.  Aubele asked her to tour with him and,
later, sing on his album Panamericana.

Having always sung in languages other than Spanish, Clavier felt a new calling to express herself in her native tongue. With Aubele’s help and support, she composed and recorded her first set of demos, which caught the ear of Eric Hilton of Thievery Corporation and later offered to produce Nectar. The offer led to Clavier’s spot as ESL Music’s first female artist and the touring vocalist for Thievery Corporation, giving her opportunities to tour the globe performing at the world’s largest festival stages.
