Askultura is a rumba + punk rock + ska band from the sunny shores of Miami, Florida comprised of 9 globally-sourced, handsome devils. These are Incans demigods aka Peruvians, lasagna-slammers aka Italians, French frogs, hardline Colombians, raging Dominicanos, super-sized American Okies, and Ohioans. They roll around in your childhood memory: a full-size 40ft yellow school bus with an aching desire to tour 24/7/365/3.14/666. The show gets crazy and it's probably better than any show you've seen before.
On June 12, 2014 they, the aforementioned Askultura, released our 3rd cd in 4.352 years (do the math), called I.N.F.E.R.N.O. and it's stacked with futbol hooligan songs, rephrasings of Aesops fables, and ska punk anthems for immigrants, zen buddhists, blues enthusiasts, and illuminated self-medicators.
